Audience Reviews for Rancho Notorious

  • Jul 30, 2013
    Good western with a most unexpected leading lady. Predating Johnny Guitar by two years this film echoes that with its female lead being the ringleader of a tough mob but doesn't have that movies atmosphere or strong female counterpart. What it does have is Marlene holding center stage as only she could and a pair of capable costars in Mel Ferrer and the always terrific Arthur Kennedy..

    it's not a bad film but it's not as much fun as destry rides again or the very similarly themed johnny guitar. also that 'chuck-a-luck' song got really annoying. i like arthur kennedy alright but he's a bit blah here and at 51 marlene is pushing it. i guess i just expected more from lang. obviously westerns weren't his strong suit
