Just saw The Desperadoes on TCM; they've been playing a bunch of films with Claire Trevor cuz its her birthday. (I just found out that she was born in Bensonhurst!) Randolph Scott & Glen Ford also star.

very good movie. The first Columbia film in technicolor.

I was surprised to see this turn out to be in early Technicolor as well. There's some good lines from Claire Trevor in her usual brassy delivery.

I enjoyed the comic relief in the film. Edgar Buchanan is entertaining as the wily father to Evelyn Keyes. And even better is Guinn Williams as the ham-fisted, accident prone nitro-glycerine 'expert.' I reckon that they stole the show from the male leads of the film.
