I just caught a small segment of this on TCM the other day, I happened to be flipping the channels and came upon it at the scene where the three  outlaws are deciding what to do with the baby. This version directed by Richard Boleslawski is very different and dark compared to the Ford version. At the point I stumbled upon it the Pedro character was already dead so there were 4 outlaws who robbed the New Jersusalem bank, and three that find the baby. In Ford's version it was a different town that got robbed and John Wayne ended up in New Jerusalem.

The three are Chester Morris as...  Robert 'Bob' Sangster,  Lewis Stone as...  James 'Doc' Underwood  Walter Brennan as...  Sam 'Gus' Barton . The Chester Morris character is all for leaving the baby, he even drinks some of the milk they find.

This I'd like to see again all the way through Brennan was great as was Lewis Stone. Just reading a few of the comments it doesn't have the Death Valley vistas of the Ford version, and its more violent, they kill a banker during the robbery. Its a bit less of the meller that Ford made out of it.

I'd like to see this myself. Thanks for the tip, Joe. Afro


That's what you get, Drink, for not appreciating the genius of When You Read This Letter.
