Man of the West

DVD review from The Movie Snob.

Man of the West  (B).  This 1958 Western stars Gary Cooper (High Noon) as Link Jones, a former outlaw who has gone straight and made a new life for himself.  On a trip to Fort Worth, his train is held up by bandits, and he and two other passengers get left behind when the train makes its getaway.  Stranded in the middle of nowhere, Jones and his comrades fall in with the train robbers—who turn out to be members of Jones’s old outlaw gang, headed by the psychopathic Dock Tobin (Lee J. Cobb, The Exorcist).  Jones has no choice but to agree to help the gang with a bank heist.  A pretty good movie, but it’s no High Noon.
