Four Faces West ★★½ They Passed This Way 1948

McCrea is an honest rancher who nevertheless robs the local bank in order to save his father's ranch from foreclosure. His humanity in helping a diphtheria-ridden family leads to his capture, but the sheriff promises a light sentence, since he is not a typical bad guy. Fine performances strengthen this low-key western. 90m/B VHS, DVD . Joel McCrea, Frances Dee, Charles Bickford; D: Alfred E. Green.
