Jimmy Cagney starred in three Westerns during his long acting career---OKLAHOMA KID, TRIBUTE TO A BAD MAN, and RUN FOR COVER. Of these RUN FOR COVER is his best outing as a cowboy. This handsomely-produced, Nicholas Ray-directed film also stars John Derek, with a solid cast of recognizable Western "regulars." The film is shot in spectacular Technicolor, with a solid and tight plot, fine acting, and great production values.

Olive Films has been releasing quality issues of a number of classic 1950s Westerns licensed from Paramount Pictures. In this series are DENVER & RIO GRANDE, SILVER CITY, THE JAYHAWKERS, PONY EXPRESS, THE HANGMAN, and THE NIGHT OF THE GRIZZLY, all of which repay re-viewing. Let's hope Olive will continue this series with such fine films as WARPATH (also with O'Brien, and directed by Bryon Haskin) and FLAMING FEATHER (with Sterling Hayden), and other other films with Charlton Heston, Alan Ladd and John Payne.

In the meantime, this film is highly recommended--it's first class Western entertainment. Thanks Olive!

Olive films Blue Ray of the 1955 Paramount film in Technicolor and Vistavision is an eye popper. Tightly written with contributions by Irving Ravetch and Harriet Frank who have had a hand in some of the best adapted screenplays ever written. I'm talking about THE LONG HOT SUMMER, THE SOUND AND THE FURY, HUD, HOMBRE THE REIVERS,NORMA RAE, MURPHY'S ROMANCE and THE COWBOYS. The director is something of a legend himself. Nicholas Ray who made this gem between JOHNNY GUITAR & REBEL WITHOUT A CAUSE. Cagney gets more than able support from Viveca Lindfors, John Derek & Ernest Borgnine. The tale of an ex-con (cagney) who almost get lynched and ends up sheriff over his former tormentors is riveting. Along with the Tashlin-Lewis Olive releases I purchased recently I now feel secure that there is an alternative for classic film lovers who don't want to be reduced to MOD-R.

Interesting to see Cagney play a good guy, and the relationship with Lindfors is nicely developed. The same is not as true with Derek's character; it's all too obvious that he and Cagney have to wind up as the antagonists, and the redemption at the end is a little abrupt. TRIBUTE TO A BAD MAN is the better Cagney Western.

I was never a James Cagney fan, I guess it's because I have always related him with a bad guy. As a old timer I thought I had seen all the westerns, but for some reason hadn't seen this one before. I'm glad I did, because now I have new attitude towards him. Great movie, enjoyed every minute of it.

Better than average western. Cagney is great. The wayward young man is over acted though. I've been on the Durango/Silverton train where much of the footage was shot and recognized a lot of the scenes as places I've been.

Good to see Jimmy Cagney in color and in a western. Beautiful photography and good cast, especially Viveca Lindsford and Jean Hersholt. But the story is on the weak side but the team of pros keeps this one interesting.

Many have been disappointed with this western because it didn't seem like a typical Nicholas Ray film, but there is nothing disappointing about this one.... James Cagney didn't seem to fit too well in his first western, but he's right at home here....spectacular Vistavision scenery and a great story make this one of the best....the colors are incredible.... Definitely worth it for those who haven't seen it.... Cagney is fantastic and Ray's direction is superb as usual....there are no extras, but the audio and video make up for that.... If you love westerns, get it....
