I was born upset.
Forty Guns is written and directed by Sam Fuller. It stars Barbara Stanwyck, Barry Sullivan, Dean Jagger, John Ericson, Gene Barry, Robert Dix, Eve Brent and Ziva Rodann. Music is by Harry Sukman and cinematography by Joseph F. Biroc.
It’s all going to kick off in Arizona between the Bonnell brothers, U.S.Marshals, and Jessica Drummond – the tough no nonsense lady rancher who controls the territory.
So what do we have here then? Just another recycled Western plot that is basically the Earp’s/Clanton’s feud that culminated in the Gunfight At The O.K. Corral? Well no, not really, for this is Sam Fuller on devilishly twisty form.
Fuller gives this particular Western a film noir make over, both in look and dialogue innuendo. Pic is filled with outstanding sequences, be it shocking deaths, bravado pumped show downs or chiaroscuro framing of key characters, no frame is wasted in this piece – visually or aurally.
From a psychological stand point it’s a right hornets nest, a meaty broth of cynical observations on love, power and that bastion of American cinema – the Western. The action construction on offer is electrifying, if Fuller isn’t dallying with various camera techniques to keep the story on the hop, he’s being kinetic with his action filming. All of which is in the Scope format, with the ace Biroc weaving some monochrome magic.
Probably now it has risen above being just a cult Western classic, Fuller’s standing in the decades that would follow this release have ensured that to be the case. Yet it is noted that this holds no surprises in how story eventually pans out, which is disappointing given the noir pulse beats driving it forward. In fact a charge of schmaltz at pics end is justified and stops this being the masterpiece many of us yearn it to be.
Still, tis a superb genre piece of some considerable substance. A film that begs to be revisited on more than one occasion. Thank You Samuel. 8/10
The law wore black and the bad woman too !!!
According was told in a bonus material from others Fuller’s pictures, he made a deal with the producers, a each three movies two were on Hollywood formula, just one he had a total control to make whatever he wants, Forty Guns fits perfectly on first case, a commercial picture, something Wyatt Earp hard boiled adaptation, at Tombstone three Lawmen brothers have an unusual mission, a powerful rancher women was involved with several politicians and member of the law on tax evasion, how we can see the plot sounds weird by a Western, the casting are fabulous, Stanwyck wore a back on a white horse is amazing, the three US’s Marshalls are put in different outlook, one finds a lovely girl and wants to be marry, Chico the younger didn’t want to be a farmer, and the leader was in love by Stanwyck, great movie from Fuller despite to be a commercial release!!!
