2024 movie #68. 1948. The story of a range war pitting tow old friends, played by Preston and Mitchum, against each other. Considered a Western noir due to it's themes of betrayal and shady dealings. Directed by Robert Wise. Good story. Also with Barbara Del Geddes.

A humanoid alien visitor named Klaatu comes to Earth, accompanied by a powerful eight-foot tall robot, Gort, to deliver an important message that will affect the entire human race. As of 2024, it is still comforting to have it made plain that our planetary neighbours are much wiser and more peaceful than we are. This makes for wonderful entertainment.

This fun and flavorful RKO crime film set in Mexico gave William Lundigan better material and a bigger budget than he was used to for his lead efforts, making this one of his best films. Robert Wise’s sure direction and RKO’s trademark attention to detail, even in their mid-budget efforts, turned an average “B” crime entry into a lot of fun. Jacqueline White is pleasant and pretty as the girl Lundigan is chasing. A lovely song in the film is so good it could just as easily have been saved for a bigger budget film with more star power. RKO touches like this are only one of the reasons it is my favorite studio for classic films.

Steve Hastings (Lundigan) is an insurance detective more than happy to follow pretty Vickie Ames down to Mexico in search of her brother. The agency is still looking for both her brother and the necklace he may have stolen. Hastings needs to find out if either she or her brother are involved, and if not, just what happened. He starts cozying up to her on the plane and it doesn't stop when they get to Mexico, despite her initial cool reaction. We know, of course, they’ll get together and figure it all out, because we’ve seen this all before, but it’s still enjoyable.

In one unusual reversal of form for the time period, the Mexican cops are not only honest, but helpful. In another atypical twist, even though he’s basically a private detective, Lundigan’s character is treated on the square by the cops in Mexico. It’s a nice touch by Wise which will jump out at those of us who’ve seen a million of these. A little Spanish girl’s doll may hold all the answers when the bad guys appear to have the drop, but the best moment is saved for last, leaving a smile on the viewer’s face.

Nice locations and sets, an abundance of atmosphere, some tight direction from Wise, and a really nice cast of “B” players make this a pleasant surprise all around. By far one of Lundigan’s best films as the hero, and a terrific one for fans of this genre. A “B” to be sure, but a satisfying “B” from RKO.
