'Angel And The Badman' is the classic story of a gunfighter who must choose between a Quaker girl and his guns. John Wayne plays Quart Evans, a typical rough, tough, womanising gunslinger who is taken in by a Quaker family after being wounded in a fight. While the family nurse him back to health he falls in love with the daughter who is played by Gail Russell and of course she returns his affection against the wishes of her strict family.
Although the story is predictable ... boy meets girl, boy likes girl, girl returns affection but her parents don't approve of him etc. the film is brimming with action scenes, which holds your attention. But unlike modern day films the message is clear in that it upholds the notion of peace and the fact that violence isn't the answer. It's refreshing to watch a film, which holds your attention but that doesn't have explosions, shootings and car chases every five seconds.
This combined with the breathtaking views landscapes of the Arizona landscape makes this film a cinema classic and a must for John Wayne fans. The biography on John Wayne and an introduction from Tony Curtis is the icing on the cake!

Not a bad little movie well reviewed above.I would give the movie 3 stars and add an extra star for the 25min documentary "john wayne on film" which covers his whole career .Nice addition that is only on the disc cover shown.Note that the picture and sound are just ok and nothing special but acceptable nevertheless.Buy this for the added documentary.

This is a good film and the extras on the dvd are also worthwhile. The big let down is the bad quality of the print. It's very blurry and although the film can carry you along to the extent that you almost forget this, the annoyance never quite goes away.
