The Raid - 1954 - Hugo Fregonese

Messagepar Cole Armin » 19 avr. 2010 19:52

Directed by Hugo Fregonese
Starring Van Heflin, Anne Bancroft, Richard Boone, Lee Marvin, Tommy Rettig, Peter Graves, Douglas Spencer, Paul Cavanagh, Will Wright, James Best, John Dierkes, Helen Ford

Produced by Panoramic Production (Leonard Goldstein's production company) and distributed by 20th Century Fox, the film is paradoxically not in Cinemascope while most films of the studio at that time were.
The film is based on real events : a raid on Richmond during the Civil War.
The acting is excellent with a solid supporting cast including Peter Graves and Lee Marvin.
The final raid is well done thanks to a photography by Lucien Ballard.


Shot in Chatsworth, California :

A very good western, with great actors, far from any manicheism I think. It's almost unknown and it's too bad to my mind. A good example of well done B-serie...
