Rawhide - Preview & competition


Preview by Jack Foley

STARRING Susan Hayward and Tyrone Power, Rawhide is the story of a stagecoach stop employee and a stranded woman traveler finding themselves at the mercy of four desperate outlaws intent on robbing the next day’s gold shipment.

The film is being released on DVD on August 9, 2010, thanks to Optimum Home Releasing as part of its Classic Western Collection.

Other titles include Butch & Sundance: The Early Days, 100 Rifles, The Last Wagon (all August 2) and The Return of Frank James and White Feather (on August 9).


Vinnie Holt, a single parent with a toddler, becomes stranded at Rawhide, a desert stagecoach stop managed by stationmaster Sam Todd and his assistant Tom Owens.

Owens is quickly impressed by her independent self-confidence. Jim Zimmerman, a fugitive murderer from Huntsville Prison disguised as a deputy, and three other ruthless escapees take over the station, intent on robbing the next day’s gold shipment.

After murdering Sam, Zimmerman knows they must keep Tom alive in order to complete their plans. Owens does not correct Zimmmerman’s assumption that Vin is his wife, sensing that the misconception might be the key to her survival also.
