Sample text

Writing in the New York Times, for example, Bosley Crowther took Pursued to task in a big way. 2. ”6 What Crowther and many of his fellow critics didn’t get was that Pursued was (perhaps along with The Ox-Bow Incident) on the leading edge of something new. It wasn’t just a psychological mystery but rather a dark, deterministic, and consciously stylized film noir in a western setting. Jeb Rand’s struggle to learn about his past is certainly central to the action, but this is also a story about a human landscape as harsh and forbidding as some of the film’s wild New Mexico locales.

Mitchum—an actor who could do just about anything extremely well—is quite effective as the sad, lost, and disconnected Jeb. Another standout is the wonderful Judith Ander- 2. The Tyranny of Troubed Pasts 47 son, who ably portrays the complicated Medora, a woman who carries terrible secrets and enormous guilt with her but who also grows to love young Jeb as much as her own children. Still another—and perhaps the foremost—source of Pursued’s power is Walsh himself or, more precisely, his ongoing processing of his own traumatic childhood experience.

One of the men, Donald Martin (Dana Andrews), claims he’s purchased the cattle from Kincaid, but he can’t produce a bill of sale. Eventually, too, the posse finds that another of the three men has Kincaid’s gun. The posse votes on whether to bring the three men back to town or to hang them then and there. Gil, Art, a storekeeper named Davies (Harry Davenport) and a few others vote to bring the men back. The overwhelming majority, however, is for hanging. Knowing he is doomed, Martin writes a letter to his wife and asks Davies to make sure that she gets it.
