Samuel Goldwyn's The Westerner would be considered a good western about
that old familiar topic in westerns, the cattlemen versus the
homesteaders. Gary Cooper is his usual tall in the saddle hero whose
presence brings about a general righting of wrongs.
Except that Mr. Goldwyn had the presence of mind to cast Walter Brennan
as Judge Roy Bean, local head honcho of the area around Vinegarroon,
Texas. With William Wyler directing Brennan etches an unforgettable
film portrayal of a man who's both ruthless in enforcing his will on
the territory and a likable sort of cuss once you get to know him.
Brennan has one weakness, as the legends have it in the west, he's
crushing out big time of famed English actress Lily Langtry. When Gary
Cooper is brought into Brennan's courtroom which in off hours is also a
saloon, a little quick thinking on his part upon seeing Langtry's
portrait over the bar saves his life.
Despite Cooper's friendship with the judge, he's also taken an interest
in homesteader Fred Stone's daughter, Doris Davenport. It's inevitable
that Cooper and Brennan come to a parting of the ways.
Wyler who is not a director of westerns per se has directed a couple of
good ones and this is one of them. There are some good action scenes
here, there are some scenes laced with humor when Brennan is around,
and the romance is nicely handled.
Dana Andrews and Forrest Tucker got their first notice in The Westerner
as well in small parts. But it's Brennan's show.
Walter Brennan won his third Best Supporting Actor Oscar with this
film. This was the fifth year the Supporting Player categories were
being awarded by the Academy and Brennan won numbers one and three
Western fans will like The Westerner in any event and others will watch
it to see a master craftsman in Walter Brennan at his job.
