WHISPERING SMITH - this is in superb colour, with Alan Ladd looking particularly young and handsome, (a bit like his famous Shane character), playing a quietly spoken railroad detective on the trail of robbers, including his former friend, played sturdily by Robert Preston. It has a good storyline and direction, with terrific outdoor shots and some exquisite sets. A real joy!
TOMAHAWK - This one is directed by George Sherman with impressive acting from Van Heflin as an army scout trying to unite the white settlers with the Sioux. Alex Nicol is equally impressive as a blood thirsty 'pretty-boy' cavalry officer doing just the opposite. The Montana scenery is particularly gorgeous, with lots of wide open spaces consisting of lush green plains, broken up by small inland cliffs, which makes for some skilled and intricate riding scenes. It's based on the true story of the Battle for Powder River which took place in 1876.
UPDATE: I've watched all the films now, and they range from pretty good to excellent.
