Audience Reviews for Kit Carson


Vigorous western with touches of humor. Dana Andrews gives the best performance with Ward Bond getting the lion's share of comic relief. Jon Hall is good in the lead, he's a bit too good looking to be completely convincing as the rugged wildcat scout that the real Carson was but still he cuts a fine figure.

Super Reviewer


I caught this movie early in the morning when I
first got up. It caught my attention immediately
because of the cast. I recognized every one
right away.(I may be telling my age)I love
the older movies because the actors really
had to act. There were no spectacular special
effects. I watched the credits roll by and one
name caught my eye. Clayton Moore. I had never
see him without his mask. Now I have to find that
darn movie so I can get a look at Paul Terry which
is the part he played.
