Movie Info

Wyoming Mail stars Stephen McNally as frontier postal inspector Steve Davis. Assigned to break up a gang of outlaws who prey upon mail trains, Davis goes undercover, posing first as a fugitive from justice. Joining the bandit gang run by the ruthless Cavanaugh (Howard da Silva), Davis discovers that the crooks have an "inside man" within the railroad company itself. Alexis Smith co-stars as the "bad" girl who turns good to save Davis. Universal-International's knack for turning out superior westerns on modest budgets is entertainingly demonstrated in Wyoming Mail. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

It may be set -- a notch, say -- above the run-of-the-range sagebrush saga.

There's a lot of wild galloping over rough terrain, plenty of fisticuffs and gunplay, plus other thrills, and Russel Metty's capable camera captures all of the movement.

Wyoming Mail [races] past beautiful backdrops on a single track toward excitement and thrills.

Competent and routine B-western.

April 17, 2020 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

Except for the caliber of its cast, Wyoming Mail follows the formula of mail robbery with complete fidelity.

It's cops-and-robbers stuff in the U.S. post Civil War days, and where the film really shines is in its virility, and good acting performances.

Audience Reviews for Wyoming Mail

Colorful, enjoyable but ordinary Western would have benefited from a stronger lead actor than McNally. Solid supporting cast with both veterans and up and coming talent of note. Alexis Smith is breathtaking. Notice the care taken in matching her wardrobe to the rooms she occupies, a common practice in old Hollywood but especially noticeable here. The story is nothing you haven't seen before though.
