Great Day In The Morning - 1956 - Jacques Tourneur

Directed by Jacques Tourneur
Starring Virginia Mayo, Robert Stack, Ruth Roman, Alex Nicol, Raymond Burr, Leo Gordon

Great day in the morning is Jacques Tourneur's last western (if one excludes Mission of Danger a compilation of a western series).
The director made several film noir masterpieces, but also a handful of superb Westerns such as Canyon Passage with an exceptional photography, a trio of films with Joel McCrea including Wichita and Way of a Gaucho with Rory Calhoun.

Great day in the morning is also the encounter of two future stars of television : Elliot Ness (Robert Stack) and Perry Mason (Raymond Burr). The two roles played by two actors are quite unsympathetic (unlike those they interpret respectively in The Untouchables and Perry Mason . While Stack's interpretation is quite dull, Raymond Burr steals the scenes.

Although filmed for RKO, the film reunites two female stars of Warner Brothers in the 1940s and 1950s : Virginia Mayo and Ruth Roman. Mayo, although billed before Roman, gets a rather average role and an insignificant one too, while Ruth Roman is sparkling in one of her best westerns.

Shot in Technicolor and superscope, the film offers beautiful colors.

The scenario is a bit confusing since there is a multitude of plots and subplots without really knowing the main development of the film. Stack's character is quite complex and close to the one of James Stewart in Anthony Mann's films.
A western far from exceptional but enjoyable.

Especially interesting to see two future television actors playing in a western(Robert Stack and Raymond burr) whereas it is rather dark films specialists? :applaudis_6: :applaudis_6:

I would like to see? Is there a DVD?
