July 8: Yellow Sky

Monday, July 8 2019| 9PM Yellow Sky USA 1948 d. William Wellman with Gregory Peck, Anne Baxter, Richard Widmark, Robert Arthur, John Russell, Harry Morgan, James Barton and Charles Kemper. Black and white. 98 m

“…for seventy-odd minutes, in this scorcher from Twentieth Century-Fox, the guns blaze, fists fly and passions tangle in the best realistic Western style….Except for the one alien female, whom Anne Baxter truculently plays, the actors are male and mangy-looking, with 5 o’clock shadows to excess. Gregory Peck, of course, is the toughest as the leader who takes the honest road, but Richard Widmark is nobody’s milksop as the blackguard who holds out for sin.” Bosley Crowther
