Overview

Former pony express riders John Blair John Wayne and Larry Adams Lane Chandler don't buy the Brooklyn Bridge in this Republic Western, but the two greenhorns instead purchase a dilapidated stage line to a ghost town. While the unscrupulous seller, "Honest Cal" Drake Douglas Cosgrove, count his loot, John and Larry learn that Crescent City is inhabited by Rocky Lew Kelly, who claims to be mayor, postmaster, and sheriff, and Dr. William Forsythe Sam Flint, a fellow victim of the duplicitous Drake. But despite its current condition, Crescent City has rich potential, especially if the newcomers can obtain a $25,000 government mail subsidy, the winner of which will be determined by a stagecoach race between nearby Buchanan City and Sacramento. Winds of the Wasteland was filmed on location in the Sierra Mountains and in the Sacramento Valley. Watch for future Universal star Jon Hall as one of John Wayne's pony express colleagues.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Hans J. Wollstein
Winds of the Wasteland is a vast step up from John Wayne's earlier "Lone Star" Westerns in both production values and execution, and though former actor Mack V. Wright may not have been the most visionary of directors, the climactic stagecoach race, as staged by stunt expert Yakima Canutt, remains an exciting harbinger of what Republic Pictures would accomplish in the very near future. John Wayne himself is still a bit wet behind the ears, acting wise, but the supporting cast is uniformly good and the Sacramento Valley locations refreshingly different from the well-traveled Lone Pine vistas.
