Angel and the Badman
(Black & White)
Newly re-mastered in HD - one of John Wayne's most beloved classics co-starring his beautiful Wake of the Red Witch co-star Gail Russell. Angel and the Badman is also the first film produced by the legendary star and one of the loveliest westerns ever filmed. Wayne stars as Quirt Evans a notorious gunfighter who's wounded and sheltered by a Quaker family. Attracted to the family's angelic daughter, the hard-bitten Wayne undergoes a slow and subtle character transformation, but is still obsessed with killing Laredo Stevens (Bruce Cabot), the man who murdered his foster father. Harry Carey plays Wistful McClintock, a single-minded sheriff who's determined to bring Evans and Stevens to justice. Entrusting the direction to screenwriter James Edward Grant (Donovan's Reef), Wayne bolstered Grant's debut by tapping veteran Yakima Canutt (G-Men Never Forget) to handle the hard-riding second unit direction.
