As a precursor to our film project, 12 Western Feature-Length Films in 12 Months, which Running Wild Films and 5J Media will start producing in 2016, director Travis Mills shares his thoughts on films from the genre as he studies Westerns in preparation for our own. Follow the project here on Facebook

This series of short blogs is titled “Western Impressions”.

Springfield Rifle (1952)

It was more adventurous than the De Toth pictures I’ve seen, lacking that starkness. This is the first time to my recollection that I have seen a “spy Western”, though I must admit that this is just as much a war film as it is a western. In fact, it’s more of a war film in a Western setting.

Last impression: It shouldn’t have been called Springfield Rifle.
