An awesome rugged Western perfectly performed and masterfully directed by Anthony Mann
Tense , violent ,epic Western in which Gary Cooper , Lee J Cobb and Julie London stand out . Brilliant and taut Western with wonderful use of locations and top-of-the-range cast . Gary Cooper is the Man of the West , a reformed outlaw called Link Jones (Gary Cooper , he bravely did his own horse-riding scenes despite physical pain from a car accident years earlier though) becomes stranded after an aborted train robbery with two other passengers (Julie London , Arthur O’Connell) . Cooper is forced to rejoin his ex-colleague (Lee J Cobb) and ex-boss to save himself and other innocent people from the band’s (Jack Lord , Robert J Wilke, Royal Dano) mistreatment .

Magnificent Western plenty of thrills , shootouts , violence , gorgeous landscapes and results to be pretty entertaining . This excellent Western deserves another look at 1958 , nowadays is better considered then the 50s when was dismissed . In spite of its violence that influenced in Spaghetti Western , ¨Man of the West¨ turns out to be an essential and indispensable Western for hardcore aficionados . Jean-Luc Godard, a film critic before he became a director, raved about the film saying it was the best film of that year ; because of his recommendation, the film has been reevaluated and is now considered a classic western . Gary Cooper is frankly well in the role that fits him like a gun fits a holster .Gary Cooper was, at 56, a decade older than Lee J. Cobb who played his “Uncle” Dock Tobin , in the film Cooper and John Dehner talk about being children together , Dehner was actually fourteen years younger than Cooper . However , Stewart Granger was originally announced for the lead role and James Stewart eagerly sought the role played by Gary Cooper, but since Stewart had fallen out with director Anthony Mann he did not get the part . Very good support cast formed by notorious secondaries such as Jack Lord , Royal Dano , Robert J Wilke , Arthur O’Connell , Frank Ferguson and special mention to Lee J Cobb . Colorful cinematography in CinemaScope by Ernest Haller . Powerful and thrilling musical score by Leigh Harline .

This top-drawer Western was stunningly realized by the master Anthony Mann , infusing the traditional Western with psychological confusion , including his characteristic use of landscape with marvelous use of outdoors which is visually memorable . Mann established his forte with magnificent Western almost always with James Stewart . In his beginnings he made ambitious but short-lived quality low-budget surroundings of Eagle-Lion production as ¨T-men¨ , ¨They walked by night¨ , ¨Raw deal¨ , ¨Railroaded¨ and ¨Desperate¨ . Later on , he made various Western , remarkably good , masterpieces such as ¨The furies¨ , and ¨Devil’s doorway¨ and several with his habitual star , James Stewart, as ¨Winchester 73¨ , ¨Bend the river¨ and ¨The far country¨ . They are characterized by roles whose determination to stick to their guns would take them to the limits of their endurance . Others in this throughly enjoyable series include ¨Tin star ¨ and ¨Man of the West¨ is probably one of the best Western in the fifties and sixties . After the mid-50 , Mann’s successes came less frequently , though directed another good Western with Victor Mature titled ¨The last frontier¨. And of course ¨Man of the West ¨ that turns out to be stylish , fast paced , solid , meticulous , with enjoyable look , and most powerful and well-considered . This well acted movie is gripping every step of the way . It results to be a splendid western and remains consistently agreeable . Rating : Above average , the result is a top-of-range Western . Well worth watching and it will appeal to Gary Cooper fans .

Downbeat western with miscast Cooper…
GARY COOPER plays a man haunted by his shady past when he’s stranded by the side of the railroad tracks after a train robbery, along with JULIE London and ARTHUR O’CONNELL. He finds shelter for them in a shack inhabited by several former gang members he’d been associated with, including his derelict uncle LEE J. COBB, the boisterous head of the gang. JACK LORD is the prize villain of the piece, almost unrecognizable as the man who later starred in “Hawaii Five-0” of TV fame.

But the story is a nasty one, none of the desperadoes worth caring about and Cooper is unable to do much with his role of reformed outlaw trying to turn his life around and save schoolteacher/singer London from the clutches of an evil gang.

He manages to do exactly that, in the course of the film’s running time but by that time there’s been such extravagant over-the-top acting by LEE J. COBB (he chews every piece of scenery to bits) as opposed to Cooper’s “man of a few words” anti-hero, played with such lethargy by Cooper that you have to suspect he was already feeling the signs of illness that would take his life a few years later. He looks aged and worn, remaining stoic throughout in what has to be one of the stiffest performances he ever gave in a western.

There’s a violent physical battle between Cooper and Lord where it’s obvious that a stuntman is filling in for Gary in the long shots. The role should have been played by a much younger man. JACK LORD gives one of the film’s best performances as the most ornery of Cobb’s sons.

***** POSSIBLE SPOILER ***** The final showdown after a gun battle in which Cooper emerges the hero has him confronting LEE J. COBB and telling him he’s “taking him in” so society can punish him. Cobb resists and starts shooting and then Cooper has no choice but to shoot him. Cobb’s fall down the side of a steep, rocky hillside is the last word in dramatic death falls as he flails around and stumbles to his resting place. It seemed a fittingly over-dramatic end to Cobb’s larger than life performance here.

Summing up: Downbeat western has little new to offer and Cooper’s tired look doesn’t serve the character well.
