Movie Info

Produced by Coronet Productions and released by Columbia, The Stranger from Arizona represented a change of pace for cowboy star Buck Jones. The plotline is ordinary enough, with hero Buck Weylan (Jones) taking on a gang of rustlers who've been depleting the stock of female rancher Ann (Dorothy Fay). What sets this one apart is its endless stream of witty, sophisticated dialogue, more suited to The Thin Man than the Wide Open Spaces. Star Jones handles this verbiage with aplomb, and even slapstick comedian Hank Mann, a man not known for his skill with snappy patter, enters into the spirit of things. Billed fourth in the cast is cadaverous Hank Worden, future stalwart of the John Ford stock company.
