When Cheyenne Rogers (Glenn Ford), a hunted gunman, rides into Red Valley, he meets and falls in love with Allison MacLeod (Evelyn Keyes). Trying to go straight, Cheyenne is enmeshed in a web of intrigue and killing that leads him to the brink of a lynching. Escaping with Sheriff Upton’s (Randolph Scott) help, he returns to Red Valley long enough to learn about the underhanded dealings of some of the town’s supposedly respectable citizens. With the sheriff jailed for his part in Cheyenne’s escape, the gunman returns amid the thundering of a wild horse stampede to free him and clean up the lawlessness of Red Valley. The Desperadoes was Columbia Pictures’ first Technicolor feature film.

Very nice image from Columbia - their 1st film ever in Technicolor. Colors and contrast are both excellent and I see some good film grain peeking through. Interesting to see Glenn Ford and Randolph Scott working together but the story is somewhat weak with some undesirable comedy moments. No extras and the standard 12 chapters (and awful yellow subtitles), but we are giving a thumbs up form the good image! out of
