Movie Info

A kooky but enjoyable Western that features a group of outlaws rescuing the man sent to disband them after he's falsely arrested. Good cast and the sweetest, most talkative gang of outlaws you ever did meet.

Audience Reviews for Best of the Badmen

131113: The kind of film I think of when someone speaks of old time westerns. Walter Brennan almost makes this film three stars. He's quipping constantly and he does it very well. He made me smile. Never mind, upon reflection Brennan makes this film three stars. Definitely worth a one watch.

Run of the mill western enlivened by pros Robert Ryan and Claire Trevor.
