The Furies

One of the more extreme of the Freudian westerns that were briefly in vogue in the late 40s and early 50s, this Anthony Mann film (1950) settles on the Electra complex for its inspiration, as Barbara Stanwyck does battle with her cattle baron father (Walter Huston). Mann was one of Hollywood's few classically trained talents; he had long dreamed of doing a westernized King Lear, and this baroque, oppressive film was as close as he came. Still, it's a disappointment—cluttered and heavy where his finest work leapt nimbly. With Wendell Corey, Judith Anderson, and Gilbert Roland. 109 min.
