News & Interviews for Angel and the Badman
Critic Reviews for Angel and the Badman
With its stunning Flagstaff, Arizona locations and a breezy tone, the John Wayne-produced "Angel and the Badman" is a delightful mix of romance and action, with excellent chemistry between the leads.
One of Wayne's top B efforts; an offbeat love story that works as a romance as well as a Western. Russell is luminous.
Audience Reviews for Angel and the Badman
One of the best of Wayne's Westerns and for the curious reason that in it the Duke goes from one tough hombre to ... to a farmer (?!?). Injured man on the run and fast draw Quirt Evans is sheltered by a family of Quakers and slowly starts to question his life of boozin', rustlin', gamblin', brawlin' and killin'. Well, not brawlin'. Gail Russell is the reason why, and I understand that.
Pretty good western about a man who sees the error of his ways, but the slow pace of the thing kind of kills it. Thankfully it has John Wayne, Bruce Cabot, and the beautiful Gail Russell in it, so it's definitely worth watching. It's just not quite as exciting as an average John Wayne western usually is.
Decent western with a good redemption theme, John Wayne is more thoughtful than usual and Gail Russell is lovely with a wonderful quiet strength that she imparts to her character.
