cue Blazing Saddles:
The Nevadan also stars Dorothy Malone and Forrest Tucker. I prefer my Westerns without romance, but that element doesn't drag down the action in this movie. I always like Forrest Tucker. In the saloon the pianist plays Sweet Betsy From Pike in the background, which is always fun to hear.
TCM has an article that says,
Far from being just another by-the-numbers Western, The Nevadan brings enough twists and variations to a familiar genre that it received a favorable review from the New York Times. In a way such success shouldn't have been entirely unexpected since in addition to acting Randolph Scott also co-produced with Harry Joe Brown. This was one of fourteen films they did together, all intelligent and above-average Westerns starring Scott.Rotten Tomatoes doesn't have a critics score, but the audience rating is 83%.
