Leslie Fenton – Streets of Laredo (1949)

Quote:
Streets of Laredo is a streamlined and Technicolorful remake of Paramount’s 1936 box-office champ The Texas Rangers. William Holden, William Bendix and MacDonald Carey star as roguish outlaws Jim Dawkins, Wahoo Jones and Lorn Remming. After rescuing a little girl named Rannie Carter from a wicked tax collector, Dawkins and Jones decide to switch to the right side of the law; Remming, however, has other ideas. Years later, Rennie has grown up quite prettily into Mona Freeman, while Jim and Wahoo have become scrupulous members of the newly-formed Texas Rangers. Jim is in love with Rennie, but she has eyes for the still-crooked Lorn — at least until Lorn proves to be the louse that the audience knew he was from the first reel.

There is a fine star-making performance from a deceptively casual William Holden, whose burgeoning screen presence demands attention, especially when dull co-star Carey is on screen. Alfonso Bedoya, the “I don’t have to show you any stinking badges” bandit from Treasure of the Sierra Madre, is appropriately menacing as the tax collector.The stunning Technicolor photography is by Ray Rennahan, an Oscar winner for Blood and Sand and Gone with the Wind.
