L. C. ANDERSON HIGH SCHOOL TRIBUTE 25: 1954 YELLOWJACKETS YEARBOOK: ALUMNA & "RAWHIDE"

MY SELECTION NO. 25 FOR "BEST MOVIES OF THE FIFTIES" IS "RAWHIDE"
STARRING "TYRONE POWER", "SUSAN HAYWARD", AND "CLINT EASTWOOD"!!


Rawhide is a 1951 Western film made by Twentieth Century-Fox. It was directed by Henry Hathaway and produced by Samuel G. Engel from a screenplay by Dudley Nichols. The music score was by Sol Kaplan and the song A Rollin' Stone by Lionel Newman. The cinematography was by Milton R. Krasner. The film stars Tyrone Power and Susan Hayward with Hugh Marlowe, Dean Jagger, Edgar Buchanan, Jack Elam and George Tobias. PLOT - Tom Owens (Tyrone Power) is the clean-cut and sophisticated gentlemen son of the Eastern Division Manager of the Overland Mail Company, J. C. Owens. His father decides he needs to learn the business from the ground up so sends Tom out west to a remote relay station, Rawhide Pass, to take lessons from the stationmaster, Sam Todd (Edgar Buchanan), whom he has known for over forty years. Owens has received his "pardon" from his father, however, and is scheduled to return to civilization in one week. He can't wait. A take-charge and strong-willed woman named Vinnie Holt (Susan Hayward) and her very young niece Callie arrive on a coach on their way east. Miss Holt's sister was killed in a bar brawl along with Callie's father, Johnny, back in Vacaville, California, and she is taking Callie to her paternal grandparents in the east. Miss Holt is anxious to start a new job, but as her stage gets ready to depart Rawhide after their dinner break and mule change, the Cavalry arrives from the east with the news that four convicts escaped from Huntsville prison, held up a stagecoach that earlier had passed through Rawhide, and killed the driver, who was Sam's friend. The Cavalry has learned that the convicts are after a gold shipment expected to pass through Rawhide the following day. The Cavalry intends to escort Miss Holt's coach on its way east. However, per Company policy, children may not ride a coach into a dangerous situation, and when Miss Holt refuses the driver's command to leave Callie at the station (in her words "jibber-jabber") she is forcibly removed from the coach by Tom Owens (Power).
