Movie Info

In his first western since 1939's The Oklahoma Kid, James Cagney is a pillar of integrity in the Pine-Thomas production Run for Cover. Cagney plays Matt Dow, who at the beginning of the film has been released from prison after serving six years for a crime he didn't commit. Heading westward, Matt befriends young Davey Bishop (John Derek), whom he begins to regard as the son (or brother) he never had. When Davey is injured during a train holdup, Matt brings him to the farm of Mr. Swenson (Jean

It's not as obviously masterful as some of Ray's other films, it's at the very least an entertaining horse opera with Cagney close to his best.

Ray endows it with his usual themes of generational conflict and societal injustice, and does a powerful job getting these themes across.

Audience Reviews for Run for Cover (Colorado)

For a film with James Cagney as star and Nicholas Ray as director it seems odd that this film is so little known, at least until you watch it. While the film certainly isn't bad in any way it isn't extraordinary either just a run of the mill western with a good cast. At the time it was probably swept aside by the other releases of the principles that year, Rebel Without a Cause for Ray and Love Me or Leave Me for Cagney both superior films to this. Still for western fans a pleasurable view.
