Audience Reviews for They Rode West

Standard but decent military western with the doomed Robert Francis earnest if a bit stiff as a caring doctor. Donna Reed's character is a bit muddled coming off at first as a shallow flirt but she adds more depth to her as the picture goes along. Good production values and location filming help make the film more than it is.
