The Reviews for Sierra (1950) 720p

It will be like bedding down in a nest of rattlers!Reviewed bySpikeopathVote: 6/10

Sierra is directed by Alfred E. Green and adapted to screenplay by Edna Anhalt from the novel "Mountains Are My Kingdom" written by Stuart Hardy. It stars Audie Murphy, Wanda Hendrix, Burl Ives, Dean Jagger and Richard Rober. Music is by Walter Scharf and the Technicolor cinematography is by Russell Metty.

1950 is right at the beginning of Audie Murphy's film career and it's a big indicator of where his genre staples were laid. Of the three Westerns he made in 1950, Sierra is the weakest, but even then it's above average and shows enough of why Murphy was such an engaging star to his fans.

Plot has Murphy and Jagger as a Son and Father living in the mountains due to Pops being on the run from the law. They survive by trapping and breaking wild horses and then use Burl Ives' prospecting troubadour type as an intermediate salesman. One day a lost lawyer from town in the form of Hendrix gets involved in the lives of the mountain duo, where a series of events then lead to Murphy having to go into town and from there things become dangerously interesting for all involved.

The location photography is outstanding, with Metty bringing visual joys from Cedar City and Cedar Breaks in Utah. The costuming (Yvonne Wood) is top draw, and how nice to see Ives in a jolly role where he warbles and strums at various junctures in the play. Murphy and Hendrix have the chemistry, even though their ill fated marriage would end this same year, and the legal axis of the narrative (intriguing court sequences with Hendrix as the defence) adds some thought into proceedings.

Unfortunately for action junkies this is not the one for you, there's some nifty horse play and stampedes, and of course some macho posturing in sync, but it's with the smart story (greenhorn young man meets city life for the first time/lady lawyer trying to make it in the male dominated West) where the pic gets its strength. In the support slots you find Tony Curtis (billed as Anthony) and James Arness, who add a bit of colour to an already lively frontline cast. 6/10

Outstanding Color WesternReviewed bycacorbettVote: 7/10

This lesser known Western film features WWII hero Audie Murphy as a young Mountain dweller on the hideout for years with his Dad , played by the great Dean Jagger. As Murphy is forced to confront Horse Thieves and Town crooks, he demonstrates once again that fierce toughness we so often see in all his roles.

The great Burl Ives is terrific as a singing troubadour friend of Murphy. The outdoor cinematography is stunningly beautiful and we are also treated to early screen appearances by young Tony Curtis and James Arness as two rough and tumble bad guys. Lotsa action and cool dialogue.

The storyline is solid, though a little familiar. An enjoyable film and a treat for those fortunate enough to see this rarely shown film !!

Historical Interest More Than Anything!Reviewed byspookyrat1Vote: 5/10

This is ALMOST a western with a difference, but it just never really crosses that undefined line to enable it to really stand out amongst your typical 50's B grade oaters.

It has the sketchings of an interesting plot, great location cinematography in Utah and plenty of horseflesh on show. (I especially admired the piebald horse that Audie Murphy got to ride around.)

Unusually, there is very little gun-play in the movie. In fact I don't think any character is ever shot and killed during the entire film. Mind you that didn't stop me gasping in mock amazement, when a character is shot in the arm to save them (LOL!) from snakebite!

Wanda Hendrix's character had the chance to feature strongly as an independent woman carving out a legal career in the Wild West. But the script never allows a full exploration of the concept and she essentially ends up, as another typical damsel in distress, content to sink into the arms of Audie Murphy's Ring Hassard, seeking salvation from various encountered dangers.

Burl Ives's Lonesome is a welcome character to the story ... except when he continually breaks into song, or is seen singing and playing guitar, whilst riding his mule through the mountains! Such (fairly frequent) episodes dissipate any real sense of building drama in the story. Things reach their most absurd in this regard when Lonesome sings a compliant sheriff asleep, facilitating a jail break!

The characters themselves are pretty bland in what ends up being a rather routine affair. Murphy himself doesn't speak that much in the first act of this, his fifth film. We don't see enough of Dean Jagger's Jeff for him to make much impact. The villains are a pretty nondescript, non-threatening mob, when they raise their heads. However I did appreciate seeing "Anthony" Curtis and James Arness get an opportunity to show their respective spurs in fairly minor support roles in the second half of the movie.
