TIME Staff TIME Magazine It offers a reasonable amount of outdoor scenery, a short measure of shooting and riding and much too much brooding over whether Ranger Holden should betray his old pal Carey. Jun 12, 2020 Full Review Bob Thomas Associated Press The plot is as familiar as your own hand and there is little new in the action. But somehow the whole thing turns out to be exciting. Maybe it's because of the capable cast. Jun 12, 2020 Full Review Bosley Crowther New York Times The story is a grossly hackneyed thing and the dialogue is of an order which no self-respecting horse would deign to speak. Jun 10, 2020 Full Review Harry MacArthur Washington Star [Streets of Laredo] probably seems duller than others which achieve no more because it is such an everlastingly talky affair, the talk being couched in some of the most painful colloquial terms in months, ah reckon. Jun 12, 2020 Full Review Tony Sloman Radio Times There is a fine star-making performance from a deceptively casual William Holden, whose burgeoning screen presence demands attention, especially when dull co-star Macdonald Carey is on screen. Rated: 3/5 Jun 10, 2020 Full Review TV Guide Staff TV Guide The finished film suffers from some confusing cutting, but the performances of the leads and the nice color photography make it worthwhile entertainment. Rated: 2.5/5 Jul 25, 2019 Full Review Read all reviews
