Gruff-voiced James Whitmore, sighing heavily at intervals, performs this classic Western by genre writer Zane Grey with aplomb, bringing a good old-fashioned air of cowboy stoicism to this tale of death, gambling, and gun-slinging.
The Maverick Queen tells the story of Linc Bradway, a man driven by the untimely death of his friend to seek revenge in a town so steeped in crime he might even find himself in over his head. Whitmore’s performance is staid and matter-of-fact, his steady tones rising only occasionally to a sharp crescendo, but his grounded and unhurried approach to narration creates an enjoyable tension with the shoot-‘em-up action of this genuine Wild West tale.
