'Quirt' And The QuakersReviewed byccthemovieman-1Vote: 5/10

Gaill Russell was fun to watch in this film. I like her face - she was a pretty woman - and I liked the character she played, "Penelope Worth." I also appreciated the fine cinematography in the beginning of the film. I was disappointed it wasn't much afterward.

John Wayne's role as the "hero," so to speak, "Quirt Evans" wasn't that appealing to me anymore than was the name "Quirt." Wayne, like the crusty old characters he played the last few decades of his career, didn't want anything to do with the Quakers in here, but they turn his ugly personality into something much better. The movie featured a look at the Quakers theology and lifestyle but, if know Hollywood, you know it's distorted. However, they are painted as very nice people, which was good to see.

Overall, the story isn't bad, however, and it has some very nice touches. The problem I encountered, to be honest, was that it simply dragged too much in too many spots. Also, this movie needs a good DVD print. Clarity-wise, nobody has given this film justice, so maybe a good transfer would encourage me to view this again.

Great western with a sweet romanceReviewed byMartianOctocretr5Vote: 7/10

John Wayne got to kiss a score of pretty ladies on screen, but his romance with Gail Russell as Penelope, the "Angel" in this story, shows the best screen chemistry I can recall. Wayne is the "Badman" Quirt Evans meaning that he settles a lot of arguments with guns a'blazin'.

He's used to fast draws, fast women, booze, bar fights, and so on. Penelope is a gentle Quaker woman living in the wilderness of the Old West. She and her parents model their lives on the teachings of scripture, especially the "Love your neighbor" ideal. Quirt gets shot in one of his many battles with gun wielding black hat bad guys; Penelope's family takes him in and nurses him back to health; during which time Quirt and Penelope get a look at each other with the obvious chemical reaction. Her sweet and vulnerable demeanor mixes splendidly with his gruff but awkwardly gentle persona.

When Wayne's nemesis Laredo (Bruce Cabot) shows up, Wayne is faced with the conflict of adapting the peaceful ways of Penelope, or reverting to his violent shoot-first-and-ask-questions-later lifestyle. Wayne's inner conflict to change his outlook on life is illustrated well, a great performance for the Duke. This all goes on under the watchful eye of the Marshall (Harry Carey), who serves as not only a foil for Wayne constantly threatening him, but almost like a self-appointed guardian who sees Quirt's potential for good, trying to steer him toward the light. Carey's humor, and good spirit plays off Wayne perfectly.

The film builds to a brilliant finish, with Quirt forced to choose between peace or violence once and for all. One of my favorite westerns. Great cast, great story.

great movie --- lousy DVD editionReviewed byalan-garwVote: 7/10

Angel and the Badman has always been a favorite movie to me. Angel contains humor and drama, action and romance. The movie can be enjoyed by anybody regardless of age or gender. I have a well-worn VHS copy and wanted to acquire the movie on DVD and enjoy DVDs superb quality. Now, after several months delay, Barns and Noble finally delivered a copy issued from the Roan Group. Unfortunately, this DVD does not meet with the DVD promise. What could be wrong with Angel and the Badman? The first thing I noticed was the soft image quality. The video lacks the high detail one expects from digital playback. The contrast range is compressed and requires fiddling with display controls to get almost acceptable brightness range. Another interesting and annoying issue is the constant blue and pink sparkle in and otherwise black and white image. The playback seems to jitter slightly as if the framing is not consistent. How could this be? When played back on a PC the answer becomes clear. At the top of the image the observant and knowledgeable viewer will spy the first line of scan beginning part way across the screen. This is an artifact of interlace scanning and indicates this DVD's video source originated from a VHS tape---not the original film print. This is a very sloppy conversion with apparently no attention to details important to creating a quality product such as captioning or alternate languages. Don't waste money on this DVD from the Roan Group---buy a VHS tape instead.
