Movie Info

After serving their time, three convicts are released from prison. One of them has a check for $25,000. The ex-cons plan to use it to open a store. Unfortunately, it can only be cashed in Glory, a small town. An avaricious bank president tries to convince another to kill the ex-con with the check so that he can have the money. The three cons end up hiding in a bordello. They eventually get the money and the wicked banker finally gets his just desserts.

Critic Reviews for Fools' 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.
