RAGE AT DAWN

RAGE AT DAWN is a terrific RKO Technicolor Western starring Randolph Scott as an undercover government agent who infiltrates the notorious Reno brothers gang. Scott gives one of his better performances here, and all of his charm and personality comes shining through. Like many stars of the time who, to some degree, played variations on the same character for much of their careers (John Wayne, Humphrey Bogart, Errol Flynn, to name a few) Randolph Scott found his niche in Westerns and it fit him like a glove.

The supporting cast is solid, and features a spirited performance from the late Denver Pyle.
