Audience Reviews for Angel and the Badman

  • Feb 27, 2012
    One of the best of Wayne's Westerns and for the curious reason that in it the Duke goes from one tough hombre to ... to a farmer (?!?). Injured man on the run and fast draw Quirt Evans is sheltered by a family of Quakers and slowly starts to question his life of boozin', rustlin', gamblin', brawlin' and killin'. Well, not brawlin'. Gail Russell is the reason why, and I understand that.

    Pretty good western about a man who sees the error of his ways, but the slow pace of the thing kind of kills it. Thankfully it has John Wayne, Bruce Cabot, and the beautiful Gail Russell in it, so it's definitely worth watching. It's just not quite as exciting as an average John Wayne western usually is.

    This is a leisurely paced tale of an outlaw (John Wayne) who is befriended by a Quaker family, becomes ensnared by a Quaker girl (Gail Russell) and struggles to give up his past; gun slinger tries to hang up his guns and become a farmer. "Angel and the Badman" is a very enjoyable film with a great love story and recommended for fans of John Wayne.

    john wayne playing the gunslinger who tries to hang up his guns for a simple way of life as a farmer when he meets the gorgeous gail russell and her quaker family. mr wayne or the duke as he's otherwise known does well in this. i enjoyed it more than some of his others. there was some good humour in it and gail russell was just top totty
