Ramrod is a good western with above-par names. The title stands for ranch foreman and Joel McCrea is the ramrod of Veronica Lake’s ranch. The challenge starts when the cattlemen would stop sheepherding in this cowtown of the 1870s.

Preston Foster runs the cow-country, with acquiescence of Charlie Ruggles whom his daughter (Lake) defies when she throws the gauntlet to Foster. Arleen Whelan is the honest homespun seamstress to whom McCrea finally turns, and in between there is the volatile Don DeFore as the hero’s aide and Donald Crisp as the honest sheriff who is another victim of Foster’s men.

The femme angles give more than ordinary substance to this western which otherwise has its usual assortment of gunplay, hard-riding, skullduggery and the inevitable chase for the finale.
