Better than I’d expected.
I have been an avid Turner Classic Movies viewer and cannot recall them ever playing this obscure Gary Cooper film. It’s a shame, as it’s pretty good. The film is a remake of the Cagney film “Torrid Zone” and it’s also a bit similar (at least in the early part of the movie) to “Wages of Fear”…a film that also came out in 1953.
Jeff and Dutch (Gary Cooper and Ward Bond) are stuck in Mexico*…broke and with no prospects after bandits dynamite their oil rig. They get a crazy job transporting nitroglycerin but it turns out that the guy hiring them is a crook. Fortunately, at least at first, an old friend, Paco (Anthony Quinn), discovers their plight and hires them. Unfortunately, his wife, Marina (Barbara Stanwyck), is a total screwball…a femme fatale in the most vivid sense. She doesn’t appreciate that Paco is handsome, loves her and provides her with anything she wants…she wants Jeff…mostly because it’s wrong! What’s to come of all this?
This is a decent film that gets better later due to Stanwyck’s florid character. She’s bad…really, really bad…and although she was not the lead, she easily dominated the film. The only negative is that you KNOW what’s going to happen to her due to the notion enforced at the time that the evil must ultimately pay. Exciting and well worth seeing.
Could have been an excellent film
Fregonese was a good director, the cast is good ( although Gary Cooper always seemed a bit monotonous and cold ) but Anthony Quinn makes up for him with his own special form of excess. Barbara Stanwyck sadly walks through it as a ‘ bad woman ‘ and pulls out all the cliched, familiar gestures of the stereotyped and underwritten ‘ nasty female ‘. Ruth Roman has at least a rounded role and acts superbly. and in my opinion saves the film. As for the plot it is overblown and psychologically superficial. But as a superficial film it is watchable and has its fine moments, one of which is a scene between Stanwyck and Roman. I cannot tell what they made of each other, but a film that was theirs would have been great chemistry. The macho feel of the film is tedious and the song which was a great hit in its day that opens the film has a drive to it that the film sometimes follows. It could have been excellent, but falls too often into the excess that only Quinn makes believable. The end is literally hysterical!!!
