CAST:

(Fidelity)






    This Marlene Dietrich western has some of the flavour of the old outdoor classics (like the actress's own onetime Destry Rides Again without fully capturing their quality and magic. Fhe characters play the corny plot (original story by Silvia Richards) straight; directing keeps the pace lively and interesting, and the outdoor shots, abetted by the constant splash of colour, are eye-arresting. Dietrich is as sul- try and alluring as ever.

    Plot, starting off in a little Wyoming town in the 1870s, finds a young femme brutally assaulted and killed on the eve of her wedding and her embittered cowboy lover (Arthur Kennedy) riding off to find and kill the unknown murderer. The trail first leads to Frenchy Fairmount (Mel Ferrer), a flashy outlaw, and then to Chuck-a-Luck, the ranch run by Altar Keane (Dietrich), one-time fabulous saloon entertainer.

    Dietrich is a dazzling recreation of the oldtime saloon mistress, and handles her song, Get Away, Young Man, with her usual throaty skill.
