      Jay Carmody Washington Star There is not much incident in Four Faces West, not enough to keep it entirely from representing another six-reel horseback ride, but everybody is so agreeable and charming that one can't help liking them all.

      Audience Member Wow, this one is really good and I highly recommend it James Welch, Henderson, Arkansas, February 6, 2023 Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/06/23 Full Review Audience Member An enjoyable western that we have seen many times before, but it is lifted that notch as to not be a 'supporting feature'. FUN MOVIE. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/19/23 Full Review Audience Member Great story and solid western. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/19/23 Full Review dave j Tuesday, October 5, 2010 (1948) Four Faces West WESTERN Ross played by Joel McCrea tries to secure a loan from a bank and when they wouldn't give him that opportunity, he demands the loan by threatening to use his gun resulting to a manhunt for his capture. It sometimes look like a sort of a cat-and-mouse game and the story was very involving, up until the pretentious Hollywood ending! Haven't seen many films that deal with this nature that involve Westerns and "bank loans"! 3 out of 4 Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member This movie was great. Great story. The man rob a bank for $200 dollar he is running away so many time. That $200 dollars for his farther. And he did earn some money. He pay off back. He ran to this family he stop and help. They were sick. He turn him self in. I like this movie. Because it show the how the west is back then. You just need to watch to find out.
