Editorial Reviews

Screen legend Gary Cooper (Vera Cruz) powerfully demonstrates why he will forever be remembered as one of the most original and authentic stars of the screen. Tight-lipped, capable yet vulnerable, Cooper's portrayal of a former outlaw whose past returns to haunt him ranks among his best. When the train he is on gets robbed, Link Jones (Cooper) finds himself unwillingly reunited with his old gang. Dock Tobin (Lee J. Cobb, 12 Angry Men), the gang's sadistic, half-crazed patriarch, was like a father to Link some twenty years ago welcomes him back with open arms, to survive his old vicious gang, Link must take up his old killing ways. Renowned for its breathtakingly cinematography and violent fist fight between Cooper and Jack Lord (TV's Hawaii Five-O), this strong allegorical film directed by the great Anthony Mann (The Naked Spur) is now considered one of the finest achievements from the western's golden age.

Gary Cooper stars in this intense Western as a former outlaw, now reformed, who finds himself trapped by circumstances with his former gang. Cooper is on a train that is held up by the gang, and left behind, he, Julie London, and Arthur O'Connell meet up with the gang and witness firsthand their brutality and violence. The gang is headed by Cooper's uncle, Lee J. Cobb, who is pleased to see Cooper return. He's planning a big bank heist, the heist to end all heists, and wants Cooper to be a part of it like old times. Of course, Cooper must find a way out.
The tension in the film never lets up, as the threat of violence hangs in every scene. Cooper is fine in one of his last performances, portraying a man who has tried hard to overcome his past, finding himself in a situation where he must literally fight for his survival. London also does well as the saloon singer finally experiencing love, giving a quietly moving performance. Cobb is explosive as usual, helping to give the film some of its tension and edge.
Man Of The West is well photographed in colour, with empty spaces looming everywhere in the backdrop of the struggle. Director Anthony Mann keeps everything simple, if not elemental, not shying away from portraying the brutality of the characters and the situation. Other than an obviously "stagey" fight between Cooper and one of the gang (lots of easy to spot fake punches), there is a dark realism throughout the movie.
Man Of The West may not be a very well known Western, but it deserves to be seen.

This is truly a magnificent film. Acting -- especially Gary Cooper's Link Jones, a man who is drawn back into his earlier life as a killer -- and direction and script and cinemaphotography, they are all flawless. The only flaw is in this video, from MGM/UA. I've written them, trying to get them to release this in letterbox and DVD, all to no avail. Do not buy this pan-and-scan version, since director Anthony Mann took full advantage of the wide screen to tell his story. In the pan-and-scan version, Cooper is missing from much of the action. This is because it is a typically tight-lipped Cooper performance, thus he is lopped out of the frame -- even though he is central to every single scene in the entire film! This is a magnificent film which is deserving of a better fate than MGM/UA video distribution. TCM shows it in letterbox, catch it there.

Man Of The West is a classic. Gary Cooper dominates a sterling cast with his powerful portrayal of Link Jones, a former killer who has long since suppressed the demons within. However, when he meets up with his Uncle and former partner, Dock Tobin (Lee J. Cobb, brilliant) he is forced to confront the fact that there is still a killer inside him. There is a brutal fight between Cooper and Jack Lord which is one of the meanest, most vicious fights I've ever seen in film. The only flaw, as others have pointed out, is that this video version is not letterbox. Avoid it and wait for TCM to show it in its original widescreen format. Better yet, why doesn't MGM/UA simply release a letterbox version? Cooper made this back-to-back with another classic, The Hanging Tree. But Warner Home Video has seen fit to remove it from distribution here in the U.S. It's available in Europe and Canada, but not here. Idiots!

Here's a brilliant western. More than 30 years before Clint Eastwood's "Unforgiven", Gary Cooper, writer Reginald Rose and director Anthony Mann explored the same violent terrain -- that of a reformed killer forced to face the monster within one more time. Mann had made several wsterns with Jimmy Stewart, but this is his masterpiece. Almost Shakespearean in its grand, tragic themes, "Man Of The West" deserves mention with the greatest westerns of all time.

Mann's cycle began in 1950 with "Winchester '73," continued up to 1958 (his pallid remake of "Cimarron" in 1960 hardly counts here) with "Man of the West," and included a remarkable body of work as "Bend of the River," "The Naked Spur," "The Far Country," "The Man from Laramie," "The Last Frontier," and "The Tin Star."

"Man of the West" starred Cooper instead of James Stewart, and its highly charged story of the conflict between two one-time partnered outlaws, one now reformed, carries strong overtones of sex and violence, the one motivated by the presence of Julie London, the other taken care of by Lee J. Cobb's particularly repulsive villain... The film is replete with interesting, complex characters and exciting situations...

Gary Cooper, in the Arizona of the 1870s, sets forth from his little town with six hundred dollars to hire for it a teacher... A trip on a train introduces him to a comely saloon singer (Julie London), to a card sharp (Arthur O'Connell), but also to a bit of his past he'd rather forget... For when the train is held up it is all too soon apparent that the gang is one to which he'd belonged in the bad old days, led by a villainous kinsman (Lee J. Cobb) and containing another member of the family (John Dehner).

The reformed Cooper's only chance of a getaway--and the girl's chance too--lies in him convincing Cobb and Co., that his loyalties lie with them... Fine, says Cobb, in effect, but do something to prove it.

The 'something' is joining in a stage bank hold-up...

From this moment, the theme is familiar in Mann Westerns and here the mechanics of the 'purging' and the power of it get their best expression... Mann's picture shifts from half-comedy to tense melodrama...
