One of the classic Westerns of its era, Ramrod stars Veronica Lake as Connie Dickason, a headstrong cowgirl who s plans to marry a sheep rancher are thwarted when a powerful local cattle baron, Frank Ivey (Preston Foster), and her own father (Charles Ruggles), force her fiancé to flee town.
Refusing to kowtow to these powerful men, Connie inherits her ex-fiancés land and determines to run the ranch with the help of her new ramrod, reformed alcoholic Dave Nash (Joel McCrea). But Dave s diplomatic attempts to resolve the dispute fall upon deaf ears and a bloody turf war on the open range ensues.
With Ramrod, Andre DeToth (a Hungarian-American director who has earned praise from Tarantino and Scorsese) skilfully creates a dangerous world of greed, lies and murder whilst garnering superb performances from McCrea and Lake, two of the biggest Hollywood stars of the 1940s.

For it's time, it is really an accurate portrayal of brutalities that occur everyday in life, especially in today's tumultuous times. The audio/video quality is just superb and striking use of chiaroscuro through out. Excellent night scenes.
The screenplay, acting, sets, costuming, framing are spot on.
The characters are interesting, with many dimensions, and the actors do them justice.
In my opinion, this is a hidden gem !
The bluray is excellent, with great insights in the bonuses. André De Toth shines in the interview : he has great stories to tell, and is very discreet about his previous wife - none other than Veronica Lake !
