Audience Member 170417: Though not the strongest western, Albuquerque has a few endearing traits. Juke (George Gabby Hayes) would be my highlight. Hayes always seems to be an entertaining and light character actor. I was surprised a bit by the implied murder of John Armin (George Cleveland) by Letty Tyler (Barbara Britton). It's a bit dark and runs contrary to the general nature of this 1940s western. There is one major gun battle near the end and though it's hard to imagine finding the time for this film again, it's well worth watching once. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Standard fare, really, and nothing memorable. Not great but not bad, it's good enough to rent when you're wanting to see something you haven't seen before and you like Westerns. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/07/23 Full Review Audience Member Very solid Western with Randolph Scott. It's nicely stylized with a visual flair that elevates the film above the functional. (180 degree rule violations, grotesque close-ups, and busy camera movements abound) I especially like the story-line about the town joining together to fight against corporate conglomeration. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/26/23 Full Review bill t Enjoyable enough western here featuring Randolph Scott as a gritty gunslinger trying to uphod what is right in the new town of Albuquerque while everyone seems so crooked! He and a pal go into business, but other evil-doers don't what to give him a chance! Lucky Gabby Hayes is there to help him out! Somewhat predictable, yes, but the best thing about this one is the abundant color abound. Although questionable-looking on cowboys, it looks dazzing on screen. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member Western of the 40s...good guys in white hats win in the end. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/23/23 Full Review Audience Member good western thrilla Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/25/23 Full Review Read all reviews
