Cherokee Strip (1940) DVD-R

Be the first to review this product

Quick Overview

Starring Richard Dix, Florence Rice, William Henry, Victor Jory, Andy Clyde

Directed by Lesley Selander



Print: black/white

Runtime: 86 min.

Genre: western

Print Quality: B



Though not based on a Zane Grey story, The Cherokee Strip fits in

thematically with producer Harry Sherman's Grey series. Richard Dix stars

as Dave Morrell, the new marshal of Goliath, Oklahoma. Immediately upon

arrival, Morrell finds himself at odds with banker Coy Barrett (Victor Jory),

who is actually the leader of all local criminal activities. Cagily playing a

game of cat and mouse, Morrell strongly and silently gathers evidence

against Barrett, leading to an outsized climactic shootout-just in time,

since the film was beginning to drag a bit. Critical comparisons to Dix's

1931 starrer Cimarron could not be avoided, but Cherokee Strip was more

straightforward adventure fare than the earlier film. Florence Rice is the

pretty but hardly necessary romantic interest.
