Watch Man of the West - Alternative Versions.
It is not surprising that French film critics, such as Jean-Luc Godard rated
"Man of the West" so highly in 1958/59. The film is a fine example of the
so-called 'existential western'. Not unlike many films noirs from an earlier
period, "Man of the West" has a purely existential hero. The Gary Cooper
character, Link, is not wholly defined by what he has done (who he 'was').
When Link, Sam and Billie arrive at the supposedly abandoned ranch where he
had previously lived, Billie asks "when you were a boy?". "I don't know what
I was" is Link's very telling reply. This character is constantly in the
process of becoming. He is defined only be what he will do, and not locked
into the past or even the present. Link is the man "from West of here" as he
tells another character. The West in this case can be seen as the land of
'becoming', that which is not yet defined by civilization. Through the
destruction of the past (by way of the deaths of Dock, Coaley, Claude and
the rest) he can achieve redemption.
Gary Cooper gives one of his better performances here, not exactly
impressive, but appropriate for the role. Julie London may never have
surpassed this portrayal, completely believable in every scene. Other
supporters are beyond reproach. While Royal Dano can be singled out for a
powerful characterization accomplished without speaking a word. Only in his
final moments on screen does Dano utter a sound. This was a good year for
Dano--he was a major standout in "Saddle the Wind" as well.
