Product Description

Robbing banks, holding up stagecoaches: that's the life Jake Wade left behind when he put on a badge, found himself a pretty fiancée and set his path on the straight and narrow. But not yet. Wade's outlaw partner resurfaces to take the lawman and his girl captive, forcing them into a trek to recover the loot Wade buried long ago - and plunging captors and captives into the violent heart of Comanche territory. John Sturges (The Great Escape) directs, continuing his string of rugged, character-driven tales of action. Robert Taylor and Richard Widmark deliver vivid contrasts as the resolute hero and the depraved desperado. And the snowcapped Sierras provide towering backdrops for the mounting clash of wills.

Format: DVD
MGM presents "THE LAW AND JAKE WADE" (6 June 1958) (86 mins/Color) (Dolby digitally remastered) -- Our story line and plot, Jake Wade (Robert Taylor) is a one-time outlaw who has gone straight and is now the Marshall in a small town --- His past catches up with him when his former partner, Clint Hollister (Richard Widmark), takes him prisoner in order to get his share of the loot from their last job together --- To make sure Jake cooperates, they also take his fiancée Peggy (Patricia Owens) along for the trip --- Peggy learns all too quickly about Jake's past --- When they reach the ghost town where Jake hid the money, they have to fight off a band of marauding Indians --- An all too well told, western melodrama that doesn't pull any punches --- Taylor getting on in years is still a strong presence in the tale penned by Marvin H. Albert --- With good shots of the High Sierras and Death Valley, "Law and Jake Wade" is a good standard Western filled with irony dialog and sardonic humor, enjoyable throughout --- Richard Widmark's gang which included DeForest Kelley, Robert Middleton, and Henry Silva bring to the table an outstanding cast of players.

Taylor and Widmark are a good team in this classic western. They also have very good supporters, like Robert Middleton in the cast. One of the great films by John Sturges.

Format: VHS Tape
'The Law And Jake Wade' came out in the same year as Anthony Mann's last Western, 'Man Of The West', with which it shares many narrative, thematic and visual affinities. Both centre on ex-outlaws who have tried to turn away from a life of crime, but who are violently dragged back by companions from the past; the struggle in both is intensified by the presence of a woman as hostage/prize. Both feature aging Hollywood stars at or near the end of thir careers, and both climax in the heavily symbolic arena of a ghost town. The difference in quality between both films can be seen in the contrasting stature of their stars - Gary Cooper was one of the great icons of the Western, and a potent projection of America's self-image - his face scarred with age, and body wracked with cancer added to the phantom surroundings to create a genuine, austere, end-of-the-genre atmosphere. Robert Taylor, a matinee idol, brings no such baggage with him - void of iconic presence and resonance, 'Law' seems comparatively shallow.
The film is still terrific entertainment, particularly in its second half, with the tensions within bad guy Richard Widmark's crew threatening violence; a fierce Indian raid, with the best-ever use of arrows in a Western, seeming to swoop down from a great distance at the viewer; and the long, mythical shoot-out. The film's characters and themes develop predictably - Taylor, who wants to rejoin civilisation by working as a lawman and marrying the daughter of a rich capitalist, must exorcise his violent, blood-stained past - and there are the usual homoerotic and Oedipal complications.
