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.

'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.

The Law and Jake Wade is an entertaining western about a reformed outlaw trying to escape his past. Jake Wade, played by Robert Taylor, is trying to go straight only to run into his former gang led by Richard Widmark. A past incident involving hidden money leads Widmark to kidnap Wade and his fiancee. He leads them into the desert where they fight off Comanches as well as themselves.
This is a good movie that most western fans will enjoy. Taylor and Widmark are very good as ex-partners who reunite. As another reviewer points out, there seems to be a real friendship between the two men. The showdown at the conclusion is very well done if a little predictable. Nevertheless, this is a good movie that looks better in letterbox as I saw it on TCM. Very entertaining and well worth the watch!
