Movie Info

Walter Wanger's first production for Allied Artists, Kansas Pacific is more slick and polished than the usual budget western. Set just before the Civil War, the film concerts Kansas Pacific railroad's westward expansion, a project stymied by the sabotage activities of Southern sympathizers.

Audience Reviews for Kansas Pacific

This is actually a pretty good film by Allied Artists Pictures, its a 1953 U.S. Cinecolor motion picture directed by Ray Nazarro. It stars Sterling Hayden and Eve Miller. My copy came from the Mill Creek 50 pack of Combat Classics. How this movie got into that collection is beyond me. Its more of a western then a combat movie, but the time era is supposed to be right before the cilvil war. That being I didn't notice one African American on the railroad crew nor did I see any Asians, go figure those odds. But the movie itself is about a railroad across Kansas the South sees it as a threat and the Nort Sees it as a Good Trade line. Henchman Stone is played by Clayton Moore (The Masked Lone Ranger) who is a bad guy, now thats a twist.. The main character named "Mr. Bruce" who ever heard of that in the Western.
