Abilene Town (1946)





Abilene Town is a 1946 American Western film directed by Edwin L. Marin and starring Randolph Scott and Ann Dvorak. Adapted from Ernest Haycox's 1941 novel Trail Town, the production's plot is set in the Old West, in the cattle town of Abilene, Kansas in 1870

In the years following the Civil War, the state of Kansas is increasingly divided by opposing economic and social forces. Homesteaders are moving into the West, trying to start new lives, and their increasing presence is clashing with the established commercial interests of cattlemen, who had settled in the region before the war. Abilene, a major cattle town, is on the brink of an armed conflict between the cattlemen and the homesteaders, and the town marshal Dan Mitchell (Randolph Scott) strives to keep the peace between those two groups as well maintain the uneasy coexistence between Abilene's townspeople and the ranchers with their legion of cowboys. For years, the town had been literally divided, with the cattlemen and their supporters occupying one side of the main street and townspeople occupying the other side. Mitchell liked it this way; it made things easier for him, and prevented dangerous confrontations from arising between the two factions. However, when homesteaders decide to lay stakes on the edge of town that existing balance is upset and leads to a deadly showdown.

The leader of the homesteaders is Henry Dreiser (Lloyd Bridges), a reasonable young man with common sense; and the county sheriff, "Bravo" Trimble (Edgar Buchanan), is a lawman who would rather play cards than get involved in any real or potential unrest in Abilene. Marshal Mitchell, however, does strive to prevent the upcoming confrontation while also dealing with a clash in his personal life, which is divided as well between Rita (Ann Dvorak), a flashy showgirl who works on the cattle drovers' side of the street, and Sherry (Rhonda Fleming), the modest, churchgoing daughter of a shopkeeper on the other side of the street.
