Movie Info

Mattie Appleyard (James Stewart) has spent the last 40 years behind bars and is finally out. A model prisoner and a hard worker, Appleyard saved up over $25,000 while in prison and entrusted the money to prison guard "Doc" Council (George Kennedy). Appleyard, along with his two ex-con friends, plans to become a respectable citizen by using the money to open a general store -- but it soon becomes clear that Doc and an unscrupulous banker have no intention of letting him go straight.

Critic Reviews for Fool's Parade

All Critics (2) | Fresh (1) | Rotten (1)

  • It is the best film Andrew V. McLaglen has directed and a reassuring reminder that the narrative film need not be dead so long as it can be done well, invested with color and conviction.

  • It is the kind of picture that leans heavily on Stewart's skill, personality and built-in folksiness. Time and again he gives you the impression of an interesting character that really isn't there in the role.
