- The Man from Laramie (1955)
FP113: “The Man from Laaaarrraammieee…"
James Stewart and Anthony Mann team up for one last time—and the only time in CinemaScope—to bring to life one of the best and grittiest of the first round of “adult westerns” of the 1950s. Stewart inches ever farther from his nice guy persona of the thirties and forties, while Mr. Mann serves up a steaming bowl of his trademarked sudden, palpable violence. Throw in a stellar supporting cast including Arthur Kennedy, Donald Crisp, Aline MacMahon and the lovable Wally Ford and you have one of the best FILMS, not just WESTERNS, of the 1950s!
