Angel and the Badman

THE DRAMATIC STORY OF A GIRL IN A MAN’S WORLD WHO TAUGHT A KILLER THE REAL MEANING OF LOVE!

Wounded gunman Quirt Evans (John Wayne) ends up on a farm owned by a Quaker family, where he recovers ā€“ and falls in love with the daughter (Gail Russell). The first movie Wayne produced and starred in may feel familiar to anyone whoā€™s ever seen Witness (1985); as expected, the gunman learns to respect the familyā€™s faith and habits, even though the story throws reasons at him to return to his old life. Enjoyable, with an attractive performance by Russell and a good chase sequence. The filmā€™s standout: Harry Carey as the veteran sheriff who keeps expecting to hang Wayne.Ā 

1947-U.S. 100 min. B/W. Produced byĀ John Wayne. Written and directed byĀ James Edward Grant. Cast: John Wayne (Quirt Evans), Gail Russell (Penelope Worth), Harry Carey (Wistful McClintock), Irene Rich, Bruce Cabot, Lee Dixon.

Trivia: Remade as a TV movie, Angel and the Badman (2009). Johnny Cash later wrote a song inspired by the film.
