Movie Info

In this "Lone Star" western, John Carruthers (John Wayne) is hot on the trail of the bad guy who kidnapped heroine Betty Mason (Eleanor Hunt). Unfortunately, Carruthers is himself pursued by the sheriff, who believes that Our Hero is an outlaw. By the time everything is straightened out, the sheriff discovers what the audience has suspected all along: that Carruthers is really a federal marshal, travelling incognito. The admittedly thinnish plot of Blue Steel is never permitted to impede the film's non-stop action. George "Gabby" Hayes and Yakima Canutt, both of whom would continue to be associated with Wayne well into the 1940s, are prominent among the supporting players.more

Audience Reviews for Blue Steel

Made in 1934 here is a standard action oater from those glory days in Hollywood, with plenty of rootin', tootin' shooting and riding to save the day. Gabby Hayes admirably seconds the action.

Just your regular run-of-the-mill western. If it wasn't for John Wayne, nobody would throw the skull of a drunken rat after this one.

One of John Wayne's best Western detective film. Not much of the twist and suspense but the acting is still classic. Wayne portrait as a young man following a thief while being suspected and followed by a local Sheriff. Later they joined up to lasso ...(read more)up all the bad guys and save the day.
