Editorial Reviews

The Civil War is over, but the fighting continues along the blood-drenched Missouri-Kansas border. Union officer Jeff Clanton (Robert Ryan) wants to end the strife, offering amnesty to Quantrill's Raiders if they pledge loyalty to the U.S. But a detective (Robert Preston) eager to collect the prices on the raiders' heads is stirring the waters. He and his underlings set out to capture the men - Frank and Jesse James among them - and deliver them to the gallows.

After Badman's Territory and Return of the Bad Men (in which Ryan played the Sundance Kid), more pistol-packin' outlaws take aim in Best of the Badmen. Walter Brennan and Claire Trevor co-star.

This is great Western starring; Robert Ryan, Claire Trevor, Robert Preston, Jack Beutel, Walter Brennan, Bruce Cabot, John Archer, Lawrence Tierney, Barton MacLane and directed by William D. Russell (Hazel, Father Knows Best, Dennis the Menace). This movie runs for about 84mins (1hr 24mins), is in color and Full frame format. Warner Bros. did a great job on releasing this on DVD and the quality of the is pretty good with great audio and the video is in Technicolor. Overall this is a great western and I would recommend it to anyone, especially to Western fans or fans of these stars.

Robert Ryan headlines the cast of this lively post Civil War Western that gives yet another cinematic outing to the famous ex-members of Quantrell's gang -the James and Younger brothers ,Curly Ringo et al.Ryan does not play one of their number but instead is a Union officer who persuades a group of ex Confederates ,members of Quantrell's outfit,to surrender and after taking an oath of allegiance be pardoned .They try to do so but they are betrayed by Robert Preston as a grasping and avaricious detective who has other ideas.He wants the reward for turning them in .A shootout ensues as a result of which Ryan is framed on a murder charge and sentenced to death by hanging

Aided by Preston's bitter ,disillusioned wife(Claire Trevor)he escapes from gaol and joins up with the outlaws .They embark on a campaign of aimed specifically at Preston's growing business interests ,a campaign that is successful but which is threatened by dissension within their ranks and Preston's fightback

This has a pretty good cast and they give decent performances all round .Ryan is as always excellent and Preston contributes another polished performance to his gallery of slimy Western villains -as per "Whispering Smith "and "Blood on the Moon" .Jack Beutel,in his first movie for almost a decade is good as Bob Younger as is Bruce Cabot who plays his brother Cole.There is a firece ,biting Jesse James from the always dependable Lawrence Tierney and a wry turn from the great Walter Brennan as Doc Butcher .The dialogue by Robert Hardy Andrews and John Twist is snappy and Edward Cronjager contributes some lovely ,lustrous Tecnicolor photography
This is no classic but it is a lively genre piece that repays watching
