Reviews

A judge teeters on the brink of insanity... a town on the edge of revolt. And only one man stands between them in this powerful western featuring two of Hollywood's greatest leading men. Glenn Forddelivers a mesmerizing performance as Owen Devereaux, a sadistic Civil War vet who continues to kill for the joy of it even after he becomes a judge. William Holden is outstanding as Del Stewart, Devereaux's marshal and ex-army pal who tries to restrain the judge's violent nature. When Devereaux's psychotic behavior forces the townspeople to take up arms against him, the former friends are pited together against each other in a brutal conflict with fatal consequences. The suspense never falters in acclaimed director Henry Levin's tightly woven tale which delves into the devastating psychological effects of war.

Format: DVD
The Man from Colorado was one of those rarities; a Western with something to say.

The story is concerned with Owen Devereaux (Glenn Ford), a small-town lawyer who has joined the Union army in the Civil War and been elected by the men to Colonel. As the war ends, and we join the action, Devereaux has become a man out of control. He is addicted to killing as well as having developed martinet tendencies. The film opens with the slaughter of confederate soldiers trying to surrender, Devereaux ignoring their white flag.

On their return to Colorado, the regiment soldiers are hailed as heroes and Devereaux is invited to be the federal judge, much to the disquiet of William Holden, playing his loyal friend who joined the army with him. Naturally Devereaux turns out to be a hanging judge of the worst possible kind and conflict is inevitable between him, upholding the law, and his former soldiers, many of whom turn to banditry when they are cheated out of their gold claims by stay-at-home businessmen using federal law. The irony is that they have not worked their claim for three years so, by law, the land returns to the federal authorities, but, of course, they've been fighting for the Union for four years, hence the injustice.

This Western works so well because it is not your usual good guy/bad guy shoot 'em up. It was made just after the Second World War, when hundreds of thousands of American men were returning to their homes and trying to integrate. Some of those men felt resentful towards the ones that stayed behind. Some of those men had killed and were lost in psychological confusion. The Man from Colorado spoke directly to those men. Partly it said 'it's okay to be affected by war,' partly - in the Holden character - it showed a way to cope.

Having had this film recommended to me, and having read the excellent and informed reviews on this film, I did the decent thing and bought it. I am glad to say that I am in complete agreement with my fellow reviewers. What a pleasant surprise. A western that has not dated in the slightest and packs a strong punch. Looking at the director Henry Levin's films you have to wonder where this one came from. Most are very forgettable affairs, and he was certainly not known for westerns.

It is unusual to see a film of that period deal with the psychological damage that war can inflict on the human mind. The much later film "Regeneration" deals with the same subject in even more depth. In that film it was shell shocked first world war veterans as opposed to American Civil war victims. These are the unseen victims of all wars. An illness that we still fail to understand fully, but an illness that can be just as deadly as any bullet.

I would also agree with the reviewer who believed this was Glenn Ford's best film performance. His role as a Civil war captain with deteriorating mental health problems as a result of his war experiences, certainly demanded more of him than the usual easy going roles he generally undertook. It was a great surprise to me that he could be that good. It should also be said that William Holden was also excellent in one of his earlier roles. The film was long looked upon as an honourable failure, but time can give a different perspective. It is a film that deserves more recognition. Highly recommended.

If you like Glenn Ford In cowboy films you will like this one as I have been a fan of his since 7 years old some odd 60 years now,
So keep these old films coming as the modern day films have a long way to go to better these.

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
The end of the Civil War is nigh and one last pocket of Confederate resistance is holed up at Jacob's Gorge. Knowing their time is up they hoist the white flag in surrender. Union Colonel Owen Devereaux sees the white flag but orders the attack anyway. Returning home with his friend and colleague, Capt. Del Stewart, Devereaux grows ever more erratic by the day, his friends, his loves and all who cross him, are sure to pay if they can't rein in his madness.

Starring Glenn Ford as Devereaux and William Holden as Stewart, directed by Henry Levin, The Man from Colorado, from a story by Borden Chase, is an intriguing psychological Western. The story follows the theme of a man ravaged by war and his inability to let go of the anger and mistrust gnawing away at him. Perfectly essayed by Ford as Devereaux {great to see him donning some bad guy boots}, the film is rather grim in context. Light on action {no bad thing here at all} it's with the dialogue driven characters that Levin's film really triumphs. Having both become lawmen, it would have been easy for all to just play out a standard oater as the two friends are driven apart by not only their different levels of sanity {Holden's Stewart is an excellent counter point to Ford's blood thirst}, but also the love of a good woman {Ellen Drew's petite Caroline Emmet}. But Chase's story has other elements to keep it from ever being formulaic. There's a deep political thread involving power and those entrusted with it, while the treatment of returning soldiers is firmly given prominence. Here the "boys" return after 3 years of being knee deep in blood and bone, to find that their claims are no longer valid. Snaffled by a greedy corporate type, thus as the "boys" look to the law for help?.....
