An odd film that leaves the viewer more sympathetic to the putative villain Henry Fonda than to the hero Jimmy Stewart.
A wrongfully overlooked Western with good acting. The script and dialogue were on the mark as well. It was great to see James Stewart's character come to life at the end. (First and only viewing - 9/16/2018)
Henry Fonda broke from tradition and portrayed two villains in 1968. One was Once Upon A Time In The West; This was the other.
Good friends Stewart and Fonda play adversaries, but each are at the same time conflicted over their values. Sort of a reexploration of High Noon where an entire town refuses to stand up to a gang of bad guys. Not a lot of action but the leads rescue this from being awful.
Anything with James Stewart/Henry Fonda should be a classic, but 'Firecreek' is one of the weakest westerns I've ever seen. It plays more like an episode of 'Little House on the Prairie,' than a big time western.
If you watch closely, you'll even see where Michael Landon got a few of his ideas.
Great writing here. Not a typical western. Well done.
It's a lesson I learned a long time ago. A man worth shootin' is a man worth killin'.
It's the only film where Henry Fonda and Jimmy Stewart appeared together. Stewart is a small town's part-time sheriff when outlaw Fonda shows up in town with his no-good gang. Sadly, this powerhouse pairing and solid set-up ends up being a rather dull western. The film begin well and has a good final showdown, but the midsection of the film was quite slow and way overlong. Not terrible, but this could easily have been made a classic.
Gritty western about Stewart standing up to a gang of outlaws led by Fonda. Nothing novel, nor much to work with writing wise, but it passes the time and keeps you sort of interested.
A slow burner, but a satisfying character study--Hard to find a place with no bruises!!
It moves a little slow. But worth watching if ya like westerns.
