Critic Reviews for The Baron of Arizona
Not one of Fuller's best films, though the subject is fascinatingly offbeat, the cinematography is by James Wong Howe, and no personal Fuller project is devoid of interest.
A Balzacian comedy recalled by a man who, like Fuller, can't help admiring a rogue who can wield ingenuity in a wolfish world
This is a powerful and colorful film, the second to be directed by the gifted Fuller, which shows a large slice of pioneer life in early America.
The craziest true story I've never heard of that turned out to be pretty damn true. Even with Fuller shouting his own melodramatic version of the truth at the top of his lungs
Starring Vincent Price, Sam Fuller's second feature is a bizarre noirish Western, marred by preposterous plotting, but extremely well shot by ace lesner James Wong Howe.
Audience Reviews for The Baron of Arizona
Interesting because it's based on a true story. Sam Fuller delivers one his calmest pictures.
It's a pretty far fetched story, but it is said to be based on a real story, which is really incredible. This movie is dramatic, romantic, exciting, and humorous. I loved Price in this movie.
somewhat exaggerated account of the notorious conman who used forged spanish land grants and even an orphaned girl to try to gain control of a large part of arizona territory. pretty interesting tale of the wild and woolly days of the old west http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_Reavis
