CORONER CREEK 1948 (DVD-R)
Great Randolph Scott western. Scott is a man looking for the killer of his fiance, and after 18 months he finds the man he is looking for, and slowly begins to chip away at his empire and his life. George Macready is the man responsible for her death and he is perfectly cast as a totally evil man who loves nothing but himself. Marguerite Chapman is the owman who steals Scott's heart and edgar Buchanan is a somewhat comical and cowardly sheriff who is working for Macready. Ray Enright does a good directing job and Harry Joe Brown produced. The rest of the cast is rounded out by Forrest Tucker, Douglas Fowley, Joe Sawyer, Wallace Ford and look quickly for "Curly" Joe DeRita as a bartender. I do want to mention that the fight scene between Forrest Tucker and Scott is extremely brutal and both suffer a great deal after it is over..but that is all I will say about it. I believe any movie fan will enjoy this excellent film.
