The Sundowners

Story pits brother against brother to bring to a conclusion its account of a feud between rival cattlemen. Before that finale, tension is kept alive by cattle raids, gun battles and the constant fight of wills between a brother trying to carve a ranch and home from his section of Texas land and an older brother who dominates.

Interesting is the film debut of John Barrymore Jr. He does well by his role of a kid who idolizes his bad, eldest brother but is held in line by the middle kin (Robert Sterling). Latter makes his footage count. Robert Preston gets his teeth into the colorful role of the daring, dashing eldest member of the Cloud family, and will be liked despite his bad ways.
