Critic Reviews for Walk the Proud Land

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (3)

Murphy is shot at and pushed around. But the point is that he responds to all this with nothing more than the somnambulant expression of a boyish counselor making his rounds at day camp.

Cinemascope and Technicolor give the footage visual attractiveness. What's lacking, however, is excitement and story action.

June 15, 2020 | Full Review…

[Murphy proves] that a white man can singlehanded do better than the entire U.S. Army at hunting down Indian rebels, and can bring peace, freedom and prosperity to the Apaches -- provided, of course, that the scriptwriter is on his side.

June 15, 2020 | Full Review…

This potentially powerful story of conflict is rather spoiled by the emphasis on Clum's domestic troubles, which nullifies the original premise. Nevertheless, Murphy is convincing, and both Pat Crowley and Anne Bancroft are excellent in supporting roles.

June 15, 2020 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

There was little action, which is not a good sign for any Western.

[A] slow screen biography.
