Overview

The Three Mesqueteers attempt to prevent wholesale slaughter in this fine Republic Western starring John Wayne, Ray "Crash" Corrigan, and Raymond Hatton. Planning to build a reservoir on the site, the state government has condemned the town of New Hope and surrounding ranches. Construction chief M.C. Gilbert LeRoy Mason arrives with a clear mandate to buy off both the townsfolk and the ranchers but receives unwanted resistance from old Major Braddock Eddy Waller and his grandchildren Jennifer Jones, Dave O'Brien, and Sammy McKim, who are ready to take up arms against the intrusion. When Gilbert and his cohort, Proctor Harrison Greene, resort to ungentlemanly methods, including bringing in a crooked real-estate developer Wilbur Mack, the Mesqueteers ride into action. Jennifer Jones, in her screen debut, is billed under her real name of Phyllis Isley.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Hans J. Wollstein
Life imitated art in 1953 when the California town of Kernville, the location site of countless B-Westerns, was abandoned to create Lake Isabella. But that later development notwithstanding, Frontier Horizon belongs squarely to the 1930s and is a typical, if late, example of depression-era moviemaking. The bad guys are the construction crew, greedy easterners and their western hirelings who threaten to change life forever despite the indignation and protests of the little man. Republic Pictures appears to have been in a generous mood this time around and Frontier Horizon has enough riding extras, spills, and falls, not to mention a John Wayne on the brink of super-stardom, that the Western at times resembles a Grade-A effort -- if it wasn't for one of those standard B-Western screenplays traveling a straight line from A to B, that is.
