    Feuding, broody western that lacks some punch for the most part. The performances are fine though.

    A bit soapy of a western involving rather Ava Garder and her husband Howard Keel fighting baddie Anthony Quinn, who's trying to run them off their land. Robert Taylor is Quinn's brother who helps Quinn at first, but then later sides with Gardner. It's not all that good of a western, but it's a strong cast and particularly Gardner carry the day here.

    140914: This movie has it all. Love, friendship and loyalty in a reconstruction era film. Lawless Mexican banditos vs a visionary, law abiding land developer. And at the center of all the trouble, a beautiful Ava Gardner. Also featuring a younger, thinner Jack Elam. I swear Eli Wallach is doing a cameo at the very beginning of this film (he gets chased by a woman, up a set of stairs, where he's promptly kicked by Quinn's character Jose). I even went back and watched it again. Sure looks like him, sure sounds like him. Very good movie. 3.5 stars plus.

    Average western with stiff performances from most of the cast perhaps trying to compensate for Quinn who is in full on hambone mode here.

    Friday, September 20, 2013 (1953) Ride, Vaquero! WESTERN Robert Taylor as Rio standing side by side with renown Mexican bandit Esqueda played by Anthony Quinn. Upon the arrival of King Cameron (Howard Keel) and his wife Cordelia Cameron (Ava Gardner) who were looking forward moving into their new home somewhere isolated and close to the border between Mexico and the U.S.. they would come to see it already burned down to the ground and pinning the blame on Esqueda and his bandits just because King wouldn't be used as an example to other settlers who'd want to do this too. Well made solid western which works like a great book. Great dialogue exchanges, with great revelations. And I also like the fact that this is one of few movies which the lead star which is Robert Taylor doesn't go away with the leading lady who is Gardner. 3 out of 4 stars
