Very few westerns have the psychological impacts that this "Mourning
Becomes Electra" like saga dramatizes. Barbara Stanwyck, in the role
that must have influenced her "Big Valley" character for TV, is both
tough and tender as Vance Jeffords, the western princess of TC
Jefford's (Walter Huston) empire. Dare step on her toes, and you won't
be able to rest, as love interest Wendell Corey finds out. And dare
come between her and her beloved father, and you'll end up with a
surprising bit of vengeance as Judith Anderson as a gold-digging San
Francisco socialite finds out. John Bromfield appears briefly as
Stanwyck's brother who knows that he will never have the affections of
his father that Stanwyck has and pretty much resigns himself to the
fact that she will be daddy's heir, not him.
Barbara Stanwyck was the Queen of the west, and in almost a dozen
Westerns, it was Barbara Stanwyck who gave many a western hero a run
for their money. Walter Huston, as her patriarchal father, is a force
to be reckoned with who has trained his daughter to be tough. When he
betrays her one wish, he also becomes a victim of her vengeance.
There are also Gilbert Roland as a Mexican squatter, her life-long
friend who becomes a tool in her father's revenge against her; Blanche
Yurka, the great Hungarian stage actress, plays the bit role of his
vengeful mama; Even in the small role, we are reminded of her excellent
performance as Madame DeFarge in the Ronald Colman version of "A Tale
of Two Cities" years before. Just watch her intense eyes as she cackles
and curses in Spanish as she pushes huge boulders off the mountain in
her effort to prevent Huston and Stanwyck from gaining access to the
family's mountain hideaway.
Beaulah Bondi also shows up briefly as a society matron who aids
Stanwyck in her efforts to take over the Furies. With all this talent,
it is amazing that the scenery wasn't eaten up along the way. The great
Judith Anderson, who played many of the types of roles on Broadway that
Stanwyck did on screen, is subtle as she tries to worms her way into
the role of Queen of the Furies, but it is Stanwyck's ultimate revenge
which prevents this from happening. Later, when we get our last glimpse
of the beaten Anderson, she gives herself a great exit line. This,
ironically, was the second film in which one of Stanwyck's characters
had an impact on Anderson's character; In the 1946 film noir, "The
Strange Love of Martha Ivers", it is young Martha (who as an adult is
played by Stanwyck) who pushes matriarch Anderson down some stairs to
her death, giving that film its motivations.
The one problem with this casting is the performance of Wendell Corey,
perhaps one of the dullest leading men in Hollywood history. Stiff and
unappealing, there is no doubt in the viewer's mind that Stanwyck would
never feel any passion for the tree trunk like character. He was
perfect as the sap husband of Joan Crawford's in the same years
"Harriet Craig" but didn't have the fire that Gilbert Roland did. The
previous year's "The File of Thelma Jordan" paired them together and
proved that Stanwyck's passion required her to have a man on her side
(and in her bed) that was her equal.
Fortunately, Walter Huston is given more screen time, and is absolutely
outstanding. He truly deserved an Oscar Nomination for his lively
performance. When T.C. faces his final moments on-screen, he does it
with such acceptance of his fate that it is truly heartfelt. It was his
last film, as he died before the film was released. Stanwyck praised
Huston publicly, and at her AFI tribute, Walter's son, director John
Huston, praised Stanwyck (whom he had never met) for her
professionalism and kindness to his father. The same year's "September
Affair" took Huston's old recording of "September Song" and utilized it
to great effect. Even by only being heard in that film, he truly made a
huge impact, and ranks as perhaps my favorite actor of old Hollywood.
