A woman trying to operate a farm on her own comes to the father's rescue and pays for his release. He agrees to repay the gesture by working on the farm.

Michael Curtiz, director of Casablanca, Mildred Pierce, We're No Angels, Yankee Doodle Dandy, White Christmas, The Breaking Point, and Bright Leaf, delivers Proud Rebel. The storyline for this picture is very entertaining and well done. I adored the characters and character development. The acting is excellent and the cast includes Alan Ladd, David Ladd, Dean Jagger, Olivia de Havilland, and John Carradine.

I came across this on Turner Classic Movies (TCM) and had to DVR this western classic. This was awesome and well done. I really enjoyed the character and the execution is better than most westerns. Curtiz adds a nice film to the genre. I recommend seeing this once.
