Critic Reviews for Silver Lode

All Critics (4) | Top Critics (1)

In its understated lucidity, this 1954 Western, directed by Allan Dwan, is one of the greatest.

Jul 1, 2013 | Full Review…

The usually inexpressive John Payne is excellent as the tarnished hero Allan Dwan's sturdy 1954 western that twists into a nightmare of victimization and mob hysteria.

May 29, 2010 | Full Review…

Along with the unique Passion (1954), this is my favorite of Dwan's Westerns.

May 27, 2010 | Full Review…

This anti-McCarthyism western was inspired by High Noon, only it's more explicit.
