Arrow Films

One of the classic Westerns of its era, Ramrod stars Veronica Lake as Connie Dickason, a headstrong cowgirl who’s plans to marry a sheep rancher are thwarted when a powerful local cattle baron, Frank Ivey (Preston Foster), and her own father (Charles Ruggles), force her fiancé to flee town.

Refusing to kowtow to these powerful men, Connie inherits her ex-fiancés land and determines to run the ranch with the help of her new ramrod, reformed alcoholic Dave Nash (Joel McCrea). But Dave’s diplomatic attempts to resolve the dispute fall upon deaf ears and a bloody turf war on the open range ensues.

With Ramrod, Andre DeToth (a Hungarian-American director who has earned praise from Tarantino and Scorsese) skilfully creates a dangerous world of greed, lies and murder whilst garnering superb performances from McCrea and Lake, two of the biggest Hollywood stars of the 1940s.

Good, but…

I enjoyed the opportunity to watch this wonderful and important western, and also the informative commentary. My only problem is with the glaring and inexplicable mistake in Peter Stanfield’s contribution. He states the the film’s villain, Ivey, is played by Robert Preston. In fact, the part is played by Preston Foster. This is not Stanfield’s mistake alone, because someone saw fit to add a picture of Robert Preston. It’s an all-round egregious error.
