Movie Review by Clutch Cargo
March 1st, 2013

Robert Mitchum & Westerns Were Made For Each Other

Back in 1944 they sure knew how to make entertaining Westerns - They sure don't anymore.

This enjoyable, fast-paced "buddy" Western showcases the rugged, masculine appeal of actor Robert Mitchum who, in his first starring role, was just 27 at the time. Mitchum certainly made a mighty fine looking cowboy.

Set in and around the prosperous gold-mining town of Gold Hill, Nevada, Jim Lacey (aka. Nevada) and his 2 loyal buddies, Dusty and Chito, soon find themselves unsuspecting victims of a cross, and then a double-cross.

Shortly following the robbery and shooting death of Ben Ide for $7000 in yellowbacks, Nevada is stopped by Sheriff Brewer and found to be carrying that exact amount of money on his person (which he'd won playing dice).

With lotsa great help from his pals, Dusty and Chito, it's now up to Nevada to clear himself, settle some scores and expose the real culprits behind Ide's death.

Filmed in b&w, "Nevada" was based on the Zane Grey novel of the same name. This picture has a brisk running time of just 62 minutes.

Robert Mitchum was one of best actors from the 1940s.
