The Virginian western movie starring Joel McCrea and Barbara Britton.
This is a stirring Technicolor remake of the 1929 version with Gary Cooper. This one starring another great movie cowhand, Joel McCrea. Also with Brian Donlevy, Sonny Tufts, and Barbara Britton. Joel McCrea is without a doubt one of the best cowboy actors of all time. He makes even a mediocre movie worth watching. Thanks to John Sweeney for this information! – BETWEEN THE TIME THE VIRGINIAN PUTS STEVE’S COLT SINGLE ACTION ARMY INTO HIS OWN HOLSTER AND WHEN THE GUNFIGHT STARTS WITH TRAMPAS, THE GUN IS SWITCHED TO A COLT DOUBLE ACTION MODEL 1878, ALLOWING HIM TO FIRE THE BLANKS FASTER. THIS SINGLE ACTION DOUBLE ACTION SWITCH HAPPENED IN COUNTLESS WESTERN MOVIES. “SHANE” “HOMBRE” AND “ONE EYED JACKS” FOR INSTANCE. THE DUKE REFUSED THE SWITCH IN HIS MOVIES. HE WAS THE DUKE!
