Sample text

K Pursued begins with a Walsh signature shot: a lone rider on a galloping horse crossing a grand landscape with great urgency. We see that the rider is a woman (Teresa Wright), and soon she arrives at a ramshackle ranch house where she finds Jeb and we learn her name, Thorley. They are in love and apparently in danger. Then, in true noir fashion, Jeb starts bringing us all up to speed through a series of flashbacks accompanied by Mitchum’s voice-over narration. As a boy, Jeb had hidden in a cellar as his family was slaughtered.

With The Ox-Bow Incident, westerns became a true, autonomous art form,” Fugiwara writes. “Perhaps it took a while for the world to really appreciate what it is—a genuine piece of art. ”7 The point is duly noted. We might add, too, that whether or not OxBow really is the first bona-fide noir western or an important proto-noir doesn’t matter as much as the power of its story, the uncompromising honesty of Wellman and others who made the film, the enormous influence the film has had on the western genre, and the enduring appeal it has today.

Is Adam’s jealousy toward Jeb, for example, so all-consuming that it compels Adam to try to kill Jeb? Or would Thorley really vent her rage at Jeb by playing a femme fatale as part of a plan to kill him? In both cases, it seems like a big stretch. Yet, despite its imperfections, the film remains quite powerful today. Much of this power comes, of course, from Walsh and Howe’s visual design and cinematography, which seem to deepen and broaden every emotion being played out in the film. In addition, several of the actors convey their characters’ complex and conflicted states of mind with great skill.
