Movie Info

Errol Flynn's first western since They Died with Their Boot On incongruously casts the Australian-born star as Texas cattleman Clay Hardin. Armed with proof that San Antonio dance-hall proprietor Roy Stuart (Paul Kelly) is actually the head of a gang of cattle rustlers, Hardin runs into several obstacles while trying to bring Stuart to justice. Alexis Smith costars as New York-bred saloon hall singer Jeanne Starr, whom Hardin suspects is in league with the no-good Stuart. Also on hand is S. Z. … More

A big-budget leaden old-fashioned formula star western that suffers from stiff direction.

Audience Reviews for San Antonio

San Antonio (1945)

This is a great technicolor western, starring none other than Tasmanian actor Errol Flynn and beautiful Alexis Smith. It has everything you would want in a western, from a huge bar fight scene, to a gunfight inside the shadowy ruins of the Alamo. Thrown in is some good humor by S. Z. 'Cuddles' Sakall and several singing numbers. The movie begins with lawman, Charlie Bell (John Litel) crossing the Mexican boarder to warn Clay Hardin (Flynn) that he's a wanted man.

Clay has found some documented evidence linking Roy Stuart (Paul Kelly) involvement in the organized cattle rustling that has destroyed his and many of his fellow ranchers. He just needs to get back into town without getting shot, despite the odds against him. He sneaks a ride on the stage coach with a performer, Jeanne Starr (Smith) who will be singing at the saloon that ironically is owned by Roy and his equally smarmy partner, Legare (Victor Francen). Naturally, Clay and Jeanne are going to hit it off pretty well, eventually.

I know that it has become kind of standard cliche stuff, but it's fast-moving and all in good fun and well worth a watch.

I wouldn't say it's one of Flynn's strongest pictures but hey it's still Errol Flynn so it's still great!
