Movie Info

Take Me to Town is one of the most likeable westerns of the 1950s. On the lam from the police, saloon-gal Vermilion O'Toole (Anne Sheridan) takes refuge in a logging community. Here she meets the three precocious children of preacher-timberman Will Hall (Sterling Hayden), whereupon the kids decide that Vermilion would make a perfect bride for their widowed father. Eventually, Vermilion ingratiates herself with the rest of the community by organizing a musical show to help pay for the construction of a new church. But things look bleak for our heroine when lawman Ed Daggett (Larry Gates) catches up with her -- especially since, by this time, the taciturn Will Hall has fallen in love with her. Full of delightful little touches and vivid characterizations, Take Me to Town is a film that deserves to be better known, especially since its director, Douglas Sirk, has been praised to skies for far less enjoyable films than this.
