Movie Info

A small Kansas town braces itself for the arrival of the first Texas trail herd. The marshal (Robert Ryan) expects trouble from the herd drivers, who'll be thirsty and lascivious after months on the trail. The town's saloon owner (Robert Middleton), anticipating a business boom, wants to remove the marshal and thus leave the town wide open. The marshal can expect little help from his deputy (Jeffrey Hunter), whose father was killed by the lawman. The Proud Ones builds slowly to an explosive climax, in which the deputy chooses the right side and Law & Order is maintained. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Audience Reviews for The Proud Ones

High quality compact western with good production values and an excellent cast. Robert Ryan, a tremendous actor, is fine as a man on the right side of the law here. For someone who could play venality like few others he was equally adapt at portraying men of conscience due to an inner core of integrity. The rest of the cast is full of familiar faces doing good work although Virginia Mayio is wasted again.
