Movie Info

After four years of bloodshed, the Civil War finally ends. Discarding his weapons, Southern soldier Jefferson Waring (John Ireland) dedicates himself to the cause of pacifism. Waring relocates to a quiet frontier town in Missouri, where he hears news of profiteer Artemus Taylor (Lon Chaney) and a campaign of intimidation against local property holders. When several of his neighbors are killed by Taylor's gang, the newly nonviolent Waring struggles to determine the right thing to do.

Audience Reviews for The Bushwhackers

  • Jul 05, 2020
    Similar insofar as one important element to Destry Rides Again, this story concerns an ex-soldier who vows to never use his guns again, telegraphing where the story will go next. Then it throws in the western standard of poor homesteaders up against some rich tyrannical rancher (Lon Chaney, strangely playing all of his scenes from a chair), and includes a little about a crusading newspaperman daring to tell the truth about the explosion in the number of murders of late for spice. The piece is oddly written, unwieldy dialogue abounds, but contains interesting bits like the rancher's daughter (Myrna Dell, good here and playing for keeps) having a bit of a sadistic side and leading the hired guns to burn the poor homesteaders out. Not one to look for, but rather an interesting curio.
