  1. the_mentaculus's rating of the film Santa Fe Trail

    An absolutely fascinating yet, thankfully, still entertaining Flynn/de Havilland western. It is peculiar in a few ways: Reagan plays Custer as Wingman; a year after this, Flynn plays Custer; and the film has an (shockingly today) ambivalence towards slavery. John Brown's portrayal as misguided religious zealot / domestic terrorist made the experience curiouser and curiouser. A testament to historical perspective.

  2. msmichel's rating of the film Santa Fe Trail

    While lacking any kind of real political statement or history lesson for that matter Curtiz's film does have some rousing moments and is a fairly good vehicle for Mr. Flynn. Better however is the role of John Brown enacted by the ever reliable Raymond Massey. De Havilland who has above the title billing is wasted here in a somewhat minor role. One wonders the real intent by the screenwriter.

  3. AKFilmFan's rating of the film Santa Fe Trail

    While it doesn't take sides politically this Western is an entertaining re-teaming of Curtiz, Flynn, and de Havilland but isn't their best work together.

  4. Robert Karol's rating of the film Santa Fe Trail

    A surprisingly mediocre film, only interesting when when it is most blatant in its rewriting of history. It fails even as a vehicle for Flynn & de Havilland, who are constantly pushed aside by a ramshackle plot.
