Critic Reviews for The Secret of Convict Lake
None of the characters is entirely likable, but the cast, headed by Gene Tierney, Glenn Ford and Ethel Barrymore, makes the tale believable.
A grotesquely overcivilized Western larded with small talk about decency and indecency, peace of mind, kindness.
Audience Reviews for The Secret of Convict Lake
Decent drama with a western setting. What distinguishes this from the many like it is the cast. Only in studio era Hollywood would a routine western have a cast roll that consisted of Glenn Ford, Gene Tierney, Ethel Barrymore, Zachary Scott, Jeanette Nolan and the great Ann Dvorak, whose final theatrical feature this was. At a brisk 80 minutes this keeps the tension taut throughout.
