Summary: Glenn Ford is top-billed in Man From Colorado, though he's anything but a hero. Ford plays a seriously disturbed Civil War vet who kills because he enjoys killing. William Holden, Ford's army buddy, tries to stem Ford's homicidal tendencies. When Ford is appointed the "hanging" judge of a Colorado town, Holden signs on as his deputy. The final break between the two onetime friends comes when Holden casts his lot with a group of disgruntled miners whom Ford has disenfranchised. A fistfight in a burning building brings the no-nonsense Man From Colorado to a brutal conclusion. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Hans J. Wollstein

The Man From Colorado is what they used to call a "psychological Western," which means that the main character is battling some demon or other, and in the end loses everything including the leading lady, and, ultimately, his own life. And Glenn Ford is certainly both disturbed and beset by demons as he meters out his own kind of frontier justice. Ford does a splendid job under what apparently was a difficult time for Columbia Pictures in general and this film in particular. The studio had reportedly cast Ford fully aware of the animosity that existed between the star and director Charles Vidor, who finally quit after three weeks of filming and was replaced by the more amenable Henry Levin. In addition, the fiery climax went out of hand and nearly burned down the film's Corrigan Ranch location in the San Fernando Valley. In lieu of these near-disasters, Ford's brooding may not be merely acting, but the final result is a taut and occasional quite moving Western. ~ Hans J. Wollstein, Rovi
