Critic Reviews for Silver Lode
In its understated lucidity, this 1954 Western, directed by Allan Dwan, is one of the greatest.
A daylight nightmare staged in real time, the deceptively modest Silver Lode has a dynamism and ingenuity that outclass the stolidity of many more established features.
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.
Along with the unique Passion (1954), this is my favorite of Dwan's Westerns.
Audience Reviews for Silver Lode
Feels like it's missing something, maybe I got an edited version since the run time I watched was only 77 minutes, not 92. Or maybe this page is wrong.
Only okay western with Lizabeth Scott miscast as the sweet young thing.
