      Plot Summary
      The Younger brothers, Cole (Dennis Morgan), Bob (Wayne Morris) and Jim (Arthur Kennedy),
      return to Missouri after the Civil War with intent to avenge the misdeeds of William Merrick (Victor Jory),
      a crooked banker who has been buying up warrants on back-taxes and dispossessing the farmers.
      Henry Younger (Russell Simpson), their father, has been killed by a Merrick henchman and, then,
      Cole is framed on a murder rap.
      The brothers escape and then begin a series of bank and train robberies, primarily stealing
      from Merrick and turning the loot over to the farmers.
      Jim, in love with Mary Hathaway (Jane Wyman),
      is lured into Harrisonville and jailed. Cole and Bob ride to rescue him.

      Don't know exactly why but this is one of my favorite all time westerns. Remember seeing it on TV many years ago but I don't think it has been on TV in a long, long time. Turner Classic Movies has the film in it's vault. Story concerns the Younger brothers returning from the civil war to their small Missouri town only to find out the carpetbaggers have taken over and are running out all the peaceable, old folks, taking over their farms and property with delinquent tax deeds. The people cannot pay their tax bills because confederate money is considered worthless. Victor Jory, one of the best villains ever in the movies, plays a ruthless carpetbagger who shows no signs of pity on the poor, hapless farmers. Throw in the evil, sinister, looking Howard DaSilva as a crooked sheriff and you've got a mean mix of villains. The Younger brothers fight back after the murder of their father by Jory and his cutthroats.....they decide to take justice into their own hands and start robbing banks...in turn they give the loot back to the farmers and downtrodden to pay off their tax bills. Sort of like a Robin Hood of the west. A very young Jane Wyman as a love interest of Arthur Kennedy, one of the Younger brothers. Check out the hapless, bumbling Walter Catlett as a goofy middle man transporting Jory's money to a bank only to have the Younger brothers take it away from him. In the end the Younger brothers are all wounded from gunfights and lay in hospital beds while a movement is started by the Missouri downtrodden to get them pardons from the governor. Pretty good western for it's time.....only problem is the film is fairly short...only about an hour and fifteen minutes long....could have been a little longer for my tastes.

    • Bad Men Of Missouri

      Could've swore I posted a thread about this last night, but I don't see it anywhere.

      Anyway, wanted to let you all know that on April 8th, at 9:45am, TCM will be showing Bad Men Of Missouri. It's about the Younger brothers, Cole, Bob, and Jim and how they turned to a life of crime. More fictional than fact, but entertaining and a good cast. Dennis Morgan as Cole, Wayne Morris as Bob, and Arthur Kennedy as Jim. Also, Victor Jory and Howard DeSilva as the villains and Alan Baxter as Jesse James.

      This is one movie they don't show very often and I set a reminder email from TCM when the showing gets near. I hope to record it on my dvr and later put it on a dvd.

      Jim, we didn't have this one on our list,
      but as you have highlighted it and there is certainly interest in the movie,
      with your blessing, I have reviewed it and created this new stand alone thread
