Movie Info

Night Passage is so similar in spirit to the successful collaborations between star James Stewart and director Anthony Mann that it comes as a surprise that this film is directed by James Nielson. Stewart plays Grant McLaine, ex-railroad employee and the level-headed brother of firebrand gunslinger The Utica Kid (Audie Murphy). When Grant is entrusted to guard a train delivering $10,000, The Kid's gang holds up the train and steals the money. Grant takes off to hunt his felonious brother down and attempts to convince him to go straight. Unfortunately, The Kid refuses, and the brothers face off in a showdown.

It's an enjoyable kind of simple, briskly directed with several thrilling action set pieces.

Flatly tells the familiar tale about two brothers, one bad, one good.

Audience Reviews for Night Passage

½

Aside from the sibling angle and great character acting, this is about as forgettable as any James Stewart western could be.
