Crisp image on this Olive Films release of Silver City. As usual Technicolor is beautiful and the film is a whole lot of fun. Director Haskin fumbles the death of the lead villain but, giving him the benefit of the doubt, that may have been done to please the censors. If you like Yvonne DeCarlo, as I do, believe me she never looked better.

After the 1940s, Paramount Pictures concentrated on producing bigger budget "A" Westerns. During the 1950s the studio featured such stars as Charlton Heston (e.g., PONY EXPRESS, THE SAVAGE, ARROWHEAD), Alan Ladd (e.g., SHANE, BRANDED), John Payne (e.g., EL PASO, THE EAGLE AND THE HAWK), and Edmond O'Brien. Among O'Brien's several Paramount Westerns, Olive Films has licensed (thus far) DENVER & RIO GRANDE and SILVER CITY. SILVER CITY is fine Western entertainment, beautifully photographed in Technicolor, with solid production values, and good acting from a great cast. In addition to O'Brien, Yvonne De Carlo, Barry Fitzgerald, and Edgar Buchanan populate the action. This is thorough enjoyable Western entertainment.

Olive Films has licensed a number of Paramount Westerns, including RUN FOR COVER (Jimmy Cagney's best of the three oaters he made), PONY EXPRESS, THE JAYHAWKERS (with Jeff Chandler and Fess Parker), THE NIGHT OF THE GRIZZLY (Fess Parker), THE HANGMAN (with Robert Taylor) and perhaps O'Brien's best film prior to THE MAN WHO SHOT LIBERTY VALANCE, DENVER & RIO GRANDE (with its spectacular train crash scene).

Hopefully, Olive will continue to release Paramount Westerns. O'Brien's WARPATH is spectacular entertainment, as is FLAMING FEATHER (with Sterling Hayden). Let's hope they will see the quality release that Olive has given to SILVER CITY, RUN FOR COVER, and DENVER & RIO GRANDE.

Highly recommended; don't pass this one up.

Really good western genre. Much better than I expected. Yvonne DeCarlo was a fabulously beautiful woman with high caliber acting talent. Never understood why she didn't get more leading lady roles before she landed as Lilly in the Munsters.

The main reason I watched this movie was because I wanted to see an Yvonne DeCarlo movie. I had seen her in The Munsters, and was wondering what she REALLY looked like! Well, she was pretty enough, but not distractingly so. I really liked the character she played of a woman who was not afraid to work hard to bring flowers and sunshine into her father's home as well as being his partner in their silver mine operation. She still retained her femininity as she conducted business in a potentially rough environment, without having any feministic points to prove with the men.

The basic story of a love triangle plus good versus evil flowed nicely through the film, albeit this is definitely not a deep dark film by any stretch - more of a Saturday matinee. The scenes shot in the saw mill were completely implausible as the automated equipment used within the mill certainly didn't exist in the Wild West - a bit imbalanced that they didn't think the details better. No matter, though this isn't the big budget production, it is certainly enjoyable for anyone who likes westerns and who wants to mindlessly kick back for a spell and just watch a movie for fun.

Ok, I knew absolutely nothing of Yvonne De Carlo until "The Munsters". As I matured, I can't remember what movie I saw Yvonne De Carlo in but she was great. She was a handsome woman. Kiss in the mouth pretty. And could act. Enough about my crush on her. Mr. O'Brien, my first recollection of him was in the movie "D.O.A." This is a good movie. A guy does the wrong thing. Pays the price for it. Gets the girl in the end. That and Apple pie is what it's all about.

The good old days when there were good guys and bag guys and the girls that loved them. This is a fine western with an excellent script, delightful acting, pleasant timber country cinematography, and a few wily characters. Fast moving and suspenseful It has fine values and is good 'till the very last drop. Recommended for all.

Actor Edmond O'Brien deserves so much more credit for a long, talented career. His skills bring so much to this film and others he appears in. A great actor who is still missed by his fans.
