Movie Info

Pittsburgh Markham (John Wayne) is a coal-miner with backwoods roots, but he has ambition. He's out to get ahead any way he can, whether by forcing friend Cash (Randolph Scott) to box, stringing along the glamorous Josie (Marlene Dietrich), swindling a suit from a surly tailor (Shemp Howard), forging the signature of a steel mill owner or greasing up to a steel magnate (Samuel S. Hinds) by marrying his daughter (Louise Allbritton). Eventually, Markham seeks redemption for his ruthlessness.

Critic Reviews for Pittsburgh

  • The weakest of the 3 films Wayne made with Dietrich, a WWII morality tale about greed and redemption--the film was released exactly one year after Pearl Harbor, which features as a plot point in the triangular saga in which Randolph Scott is third wheel

    Two fisted entertainment. Marlene is uber glamorous and totally out of place but of course she makes it work. Wayne and Scott are well matched. If it wasn't for the overripe voice over this would be a better film.
