Bart Allison arrives in Sundown planning to kill Tate Kimbrough. Three years earlier he believed Kimbrough was responsible for the death of his wife. He finds Kimbrough and warns him he is going to kill him but gets pinned down in the livery stable with his friend Sam by Kimbrough’s stooge Sheriff and his men. When Sam is shot in the back after being told he could leave safely, some of the townsmen change sides and disarm the Sheriff’s men forcing him to face Allison alone. Taking care of the Sheriff, Allison injures his gun hand and must now face Kimbrough left-handed.
“Bart Allison meets up with best friend Sam to seek the man who killed his wife. After 3 years of searching for him, Bart is somehow clued into finding the killer in the Town of Sundown.
This story line has a few twists and turns but sort of predictable after you’ve been binge watching western movies all day. Randolph Scott, aka Bart Allison, plays the vengeance driven cowboy husband who rides into a town named Sundown. He is bent on killing the man who killed his wife.
Although the dialogue is more than expected, there is surprisingly very little gunfire compared to most westerns around this time. The ending is surprising to say the least. In my opinion, this was made to showcase certain actors and actresses acting abilities to further their careers. There were many who I recognized from movies made in later years.” Written by harold-sink on IMDb.com.
“Here is a Western that is far above the majority made in the 1950’s, and man there were quite a number, that has as much to do about character, motivation, morality, and other deep concerns, not found in a typical trip to the nineteenth century with cowboys and outlaws.
In fact, this is one of those that forsakes the usual focus on the landscape and moves the action to indoors because we are going inside the minds of all the characters and there is nothing open about their thought process, until they make a decision to see themselves as they really were, slaves in Sundown.
There are many players and they all have a part in the drama and sometimes it is amazing that so much could be done in less than 90 minutes. There is much sermonizing and this tale of revenge and soul searching is, nonetheless, another in the highly entertaining and thought provoking films in the Boetticher-Scott stable. Although it seems smaller in comparison to some of the others, it is just as big, and it is just as expansive, only this time it opens the mind and sheds sunlight on the soul.” Written by LeonLouisRicci on IMDb.com.
