Reviews

Actor Richard Carlson learned how to direct while starring in his popular TV series I Led Three Lives, then extended his directorial expertise to such theatrical second features as Four Guns to the Border. Rory Calhoun, George Nader, and Jay "Tonto" Silverheels play three desperate bank robbers who are halted in their escape by the plight of Colleen Miller and Walter Brennan. Miller and Brennan will be at the mercy of marauding Apaches unless the three desperadoes offer their services. Miller shows her gratitude to Calhoun with a steamy love scene that must have given the censors of 1954 conniptions. Four Guns to the Border ends on a sorrowful note, indicating that Richard Carlson wasn't preoccupied by cliches when occupying the director's chair.

Film Review Only.

Four Guns to the Border is directed by Richard Carlson and collectively written by George Van Marter, Franklin Coen and Louis L'Amour. It stars Rory Calhoun, Colleen Miller, George Nader, Walter Brennan, Nina Foch, John McIntire, Charles Drake and Jay Silverheels. Music is by Joseph Gershenson and cinematography by Russell Metty.

A little ole devil of an Oater is this. The Outlaw machinations and manoeuvres of Rory Calhoun's gang of outlaws is kind of secondary to the sex angle of the plotting. The pic is ripe with sexual frustrations, born out by Colleen Miller's blossoming from tomboy daddies girl into a sex-kitten. There is nary a moment missed to sexualise the stunning Miss Miller, she gets wet a lot, and looks amazing with it, she suggestively licks a candy stick, and on it goes.

It would appear on the surface that these are cheap tactics to put horny Western fan's bums on seats, but there's a relevant thread running through the piece. That of awakenings, or growing up if you like. Be it Miller's discovering and curiosity about her sexuality, to the Outlaw gang who seem perpetually stuck in a world of youthful exuberance, there's a constant "growing up" theme throughout.

"We haven't seen an Indian all day"

"Sometimes that's when they're closest"

Lest I forget to mention this is an action movie as well! Standard Oater conventions do apply in the action stakes, with Calhoun (a very under valued actor in the Western pantheon) exuding machismo at every opportunity. There's Apache attacks, fisticuffs, shoot-outs, deaths and chases, you know, the stuff we Western fans love in our 50s Oater diets.

Holy frijoles, a western that I cannot recall having seen. Maybe I did, but I was a little too young to appreciate the films more obvious adult appeal. Perhaps it was one of those that my father deliberately switched off on the old black and white TV when I was halfway through it, just because he could! A criminal act which only cemented my love of western films! He is no longer around to switch them off, although I still keep looking over my shoulder! Thanks Dad! This one is a right little gem! It is one of the very few projects by the actor Richard Carlson, and only his second as a director. On this evidence it is a great pity he didn't find time to go behind the camera more often!

The story concerns a gang of bank robbers who tie up with an old man and his buxom young daughter as they escape across the desert. There is an immediate chemistry between the bandit leader and the girl, which leads to a few sparks flying upwards at a rapid rate of knots. Dads are so protective of their daughters! Throw in a few warlike Apache Indians, another robbery and a sheriff who is out to get his man, and you have quite a tasty smorgasbord of hearty western fare.

The Los Angeles film critic Blake Lucas who wrote the informative "The Western Reader", considers this one of his favourite westerns, so it deserves a closer look on that endorsement alone. The early signs were not great. The film needed more than watching Colleen Moore, who played the daughter, having her shirt torn and water poured all over it in a rather suggestive and deliberate way....although I suffered it like the little trooper I am! I thought, oh dear, here we go again, more exploitive nonsense. But surprise, surprise, it just got betterer and betterer!
