PURSUED-an excellent 1947 Robert Mitchum Old West Hollywood Movie

I found this Movie to be one of the best Westerns that deals with Revenge and Family Revenge and Sibling Rivalry. It’s a Robert Mitchum Movie that has him at his BEST in superb Acting. Robert Mitchum is always a Tough Guy Hollywood Actor who always puts on an Excellent Movie. He’s just that good.

And this Movie will keep you wanting to know the Answer to What has Happened when the young boy is taken to live with another family. And then the Attempted Murder. It’s Over The Top!

So Enjoy and Pop that Popcorn!

Raised by a foster family, Jeb (Robert Mitchum) is an orphan who remains tormented by the traumatic murder of his parents when he was a child. He is treated well by his foster mother, Mrs. Callum (Judith Anderson), and her daughter, Thor (Teresa Wright), but he and foster brother Adam (John Rodney) have a tense relationship. When Jeb is shot at while riding his horse, he blames Adam — but Mrs. Callum knows that in fact it’s another member of the Callum clan who is out to get him.
