Jubal

( 2 )

Overview

Jubal could just as easily have been titled Othello Out West, even though it was officially based on a novel by Paul I. Wellman. The Othello counterpart is likable and extremely gullible ranch owner Shep Horgan Ernest Borgnine. Horgan hires handsome drifter Cassioer, Jubal Troop Glenn Ford as a cowhand, much to the delight of the film's "Desdemona," Horgan's hedonistic wife Mae Valerie French. The "Iago" of the proceedings is psychotic ranch hand Pinky Rod Steiger, who, envious of Jubal and hoping to enjoy Mae's ...

The "Iago" of the proceedings is psychotic ranch hand Pinky Rod Steiger, who, envious of Jubal and hoping to enjoy Mae's sexual favors, sows the seeds of suspicion in Horgan's mind by falsely accusing Jubal of messing around with Horgan's wife. Amidst all this nastiness, there is at least one wholly virtuous character, pretty Naomi Hoktor Felicia Farr, so guess who Jubal eventually winds up with?

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Craig Butler
An intriguing and interesting psychological Western, Jubal is not totally successful, but it has enough going for it to make it well worth watching. Very freely drawn from Othello, Jubal is more concerned with relationships, interaction and motivation than it is with the full-barreled action often associated with Westerns. Being "concerned with" these things does not mean that Jubal is always successful in exploring them. Like with many other films, its psychological examinations are often a bit shallow and obvious, as is especially demonstrated in the title character's relating of his tortured relationship with his mother. But for the most part, Jubal's focus on the characters and what makes them tick pays off. And while there is perhaps less action than in other films of the genre, Jubal is by no means lacking in excitement. Certainly, director Delmer Daves does an excellent job of keeping tension up and of mixing typical Western elements with the personal melodrama that runs through Jubal. He's aided by his exceptional cast, led by Glenn Ford's letter-perfect title character. Ford's quiet brooding spills over into seething and finally erupts cathartically when necessary. Ernest Borgnine does very well with Shep, making some unnatural transitions work very well, abd Rod Steiger's menacing, vile Pinky is a delightfully evil portrait. Valerie French's none-too-virtuous wife is alluring and appropriately self-serving, helping to make up for Felicia Farr's somewhat-too-bland Naomi.

    Delmer Daves and Glenn Ford fans rejoice!! Jubal has finally bee

    Delmer Daves and Glenn Ford fans rejoice!! Jubal has finally been released in a great blu ray (and DVD) from Criterion. This little known classic looks great in its widescreen format. Glenn Ford is brilliant (as always) as well as Ernest Borgnine and Rod Steiger. I really enjoyed this western from the great director of 3:10 to Yuma (original of course!) and really glad to see Criterion resurrecting it for home video. With Jubal and 3:10 to Yuma from Criterion, I have grown to like these westerns from the past. They definitely don't make movies like they used to. By the way, do yourself the favor. If you are only familiar with 3:10 to Yuma with Russell Crowe, check out the original. Far better movie itself. Simply breathtaking!!

    Saddle Up, Othello!

    "Jubal" is a little-known but entertaining western featuring a solid Glenn Ford as saddle tramp Jubal Troop, who finds himself working for decent rancher Shep Horgan (Ernest Borgnine), and bunking with, amongst others the mean-spirited Pinky (featuring over-the-top Rod Steiger at his most energized). With the entrance of Shep's inconsistantly faithless wife (lovely Valerie French) we realize this is Shakespeare's "Othello" on the Western plains with Pinky the seething substitute for Iago to Shep's rather thick Othello. Surprisingly, the transference of themes works well under director Delmer Daves' skilled tutelage (many of the most suspenseful sequences involve untimely character development rather than physical action) and the film builds to an exciting climax with several surprising twists that are quite unShakespearean. The performances (with the exception of the foaming Steiger) are universally fine with memorable appearances by Noah Beery Jr., Jack Elam, Felicia Farr and an especially winning turn by Charles Bronson as Jubal's eventual sidekick. "Jubal" is a welcome addition to the growing roster of DVDs available from the Golden Decade of the Western: the 1950's. Sound on the disc is very fine and the widescreen visuals are colorful and sharp, well representing the accomplished cinematography of Charles Lawton.
