The Denver & Rio Grande ★★½ 1951

Action-packed western about two rival railroads competing to be the first to complete a line through the Royal Gorge. Plot is predictable, but the scene featuring two trains crashing into each other is worth it (Haskin used actual trains for this stunt). 89m/C VHS . Edmond O'Brien, Sterling Hayden, Dean Jagger, Zasu Pitts, J. Carrol Naish; D: Byron Has-kin.
