The Virginian (1929)


 Victor Fleming


 Owen Wister (by), Kirk La Shelle (by)


 Gary Cooper, Walter Huston, Mary Brian
Gary Cooper, as a lanky Wyoming ranch and foreman, places his gun on a poker table after being insulted by one of the gamblers and intones, "If you want to call me that . . . smile." That much quoted line's origin is in this early sound version of the Owen Wister novel, The Virginian, directed by Victor Fleming. When the Virginian meets his old friend Steve (Richard Arlen), he gives him a job on his crew at the Box H Ranch near Medicine Bow, Wyoming. Newly arrived in town is the new schoolmarm, Molly Wood (Mary Brian), and both men take notice. Afterwards, in a saloon, The Virginian encounters the evil Trampas (Walter Huston), and the two get into an argument over a dancer. The Virginian calls Trampas' bluff but, although Trampas backs down, he seethes inside. Afterwards, following a christening party, The Virginian walks Molly back home, and a friendship grows between the two that burgeons into love. But when Steve joins up with Trampas and his gang of rustlers and is captured by a posse, The Virginian is forced to supervise Steve's lynching. After that, Molly spurns The Virginian. However, when The Virginian is wounded, Molly forgets all that, and nurses him back to health. They decide to finally marry, but Trampas interferes with their plans --Trampas wants The Virginian to leave town, and he is out gunning for him.

  1. Gary Cooper's first real "Talkie" 4 Star Review

    Posted by on Nov 6th 2020

    If the story is good (novel by O.Wister), the actor is good (Gary Cooper) and the director is excellent (V. Flemings) then the movie is also good. Gary Cooper's first "talkie" gave him the image of a real western hero. It was great to see this golden oldie for the first time.

  2. greatest version of this movie 5 Star Review

    Gary Cooper as the 1929 movie the Virginian was one of the first talkies coming out of the silent era later one was made with Joel Mcrea not as good as the 1929 movie but Joel Mccrea did an excellent performence

  4. looking a long time 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Aug 8th 2014

    I am a big western movie fan.I have the later version of The Virginian with Joel McCrea and have been looking for the Gary Cooper version for a while.It is fun to compare the two versions.The 1929 version is a bit campy but considering when it was made that is to be expected.Overall if you are a western fan and a Gary Cooper fan you will enjoy this old gem.
