The Nevadan

January 195080 minutes
Drama

A fine early example of Randolph Scott's long partnership with producer Harry Joe Brown (later known together as "Ranown") which would result in iconic films such as Decision at Sundown, Ride Lonesome and Buchanan Rides Alone. Here, Scott portrays Barclay, his usual mysterious lone rider, but he gets entangled in the company of others sooner and more completely, than in later films. Forrest Tucker plays Tanner, an escaped convict with a hidden stash of gold, who commandeers Barclay's assistance. George Macready (Gilda) is a corrupt landowner, whose daughter (played by Dorothy Malone, Written on the Wind) is the first to size up Barclay when the stranger comes to town. Another unique aspect of the independent productions of the Brown/Scott partnership was the use of less expensive and less established processes for shooting color films; The Nevadan was filmed in Cinecolor, a two-color process, which results in a unique color palette completely unlike the famous Technicolor process which was the standard for major color films from the era.
