Angel and the Badman Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

One of [[Performer~P116130~John Wayne~johnwayne]]'s most mystical films, Angel and the Badman is also the first production that [[Performer~P116130~Wayne~johnwayne]] personally produced. The star plays a wounded outlaw who is sheltered by a Quaker family. Attracted to the family's angelic daughter [[Performer~P216446~Gail Russell~gailrussell]], the hard-bitten [[Performer~P116130~Wayne~johnwayne]] undergoes a slow and subtle character transformation; still, he is obsessed with killing the man ([[Performer~P10100~Bruce Cabot~brucecabot]]) who murdered his foster father. The storyline traces not only the regeneration of [[Performer~P116130~Wayne~johnwayne]], but of the single-minded sheriff ([[Performer~P10873~Harry Carey~harrycarey]]) who'd previously been determined to bring [[Performer~P116130~Wayne~johnwayne]] to justice. Not a big hit in 1947, Angel and the Badman has since become the most frequently telecast of [[Performer~P116130~John Wayne~johnwayne]]'s Republic films, thanks to its lapse into Public Domain status in 1974. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
