      Audience Member really good Western here well worth watching James Welch, Henderson, Arkansas October 22, 2023 Rated 3 out of 5 stars 10/22/23 Full Review Audience Member More like a film noire in the West than a western. Good plot. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/26/23 Full Review deke p 1948. Very clever dialog. It's a cowboy undercover detective story. ALL STAR cast. B&W. Never heard o til saw on THE GRIT Channel, 4.22.2021 Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Tom M Dick Powell as the tough guy hero in a western ? Give me a break ! He's Woody from 'Toy Story' or Spanky from the 'Little Rascals' with a cowboy hat. Weak, non-sensical film. Beautiful Greer is wasted here. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 03/06/21 Full Review ashley h Station West is an okay film. It is about an Army officer masquerades as a crook to bring a murderous bunch of gold robbers to justice. Dick Powell and Jane Greer give decent performances. The screenplay is a little slow in places. Sidney Lanfield did an alright job directing this movie. I liked this motion picture because of the action and romance. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member This excellent Western is really a tough film noir cleverly set in the Old West. The dialogue is sublime, so razor sharp that the actors probably had to bandage their hands after reading the script. And there are interesting little details as well; for instance, the way Dick Powell condescendingly pats attractive women on the arm (the way you might a pet) to let them know who's really in control. (Or so he'd like to think.) Toss in a first rate supporting cast that includes Raymond Burr, Burl Ives, and Agnes Moorehead - all generously given their scenes to shine - and you've got one heck of a movie... The Private Eye Goes West--'Station West' is a rather unusual movie in that it looks like a western and has a western-themed score but in terms of story and acting is more akin to 40s tough-guy detective flicks, with more moral ambiguity than you'd see in a John Ford movie and the relationship of Haven and Charlie is very Hammett-Chandleresque... A Stranger in Rock Pass!! Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/22/23 Full Review Read all reviews
