Movie Info

Former Union soldier John Parrish (Glenn Ford) wants to sell his ranch and start a new life by settling down out east. However, the ruthless tactics of Lew Wilkison (Edward G. Robinson), the scheming businessman interested in his property, make Parrish reconsider the move, especially after one of his ranch hands is murdered. Adding to the increasingly tense conflict is Wilkison's wife, Martha (Barbara Stanwyck), who is cheating on her husband with his brother, Cole (Brian Keith).

    It's a very typical Western, that of a greedy and rich ranch owner (E.G. Robinson?!?) trying to force out all the fence building little guys. The twist is that his wife (Babs Stanwyck, naturally) is really behind all the devious machinations. Glenn Ford is simply the John Wyck of this film, the little guy who's dog they killed, little knowing what hell would come next. It'll do.

    i'm so glad i watched violent men today instead of a john ford western that was also on. violent men is action packed throughout and all the baddies get their comeupance. although you couldn't ever call it a classic or amazing you can call it solid. it's the prime example of what every western should be. scintillating! who played the mother? the nasty cow? was that barbara stanwyck or was it dianne foster? somebody feel free to tell me
