Pursued (1947, Teresa Wright, Robert Mitchum)

101 min - Romance, Thriller, Western, Drama - 2 March 1947
Our rating:

In a dark Western that is as much family melodrama as action picture, Robert Mitchum flees from a mob as we see in flashback the events that led to the pursuit. The central mystery of who he is and why he is being followed is kept until the fiery conclusion. Teresa Wright is fine in support - first as Mitchum's enemy, then his wife.

A clip from Pursued appears in the 1999 documentary Grass, about the U.S. government's pursuit of marijuana smokers, including star Robert Mitchum, who was arrested the following year for smoking the controlled substance.
