Station West Dick Powell Jane Greer

In Station West Dick Powell goes after noir-babe Jane Greer as he tracks the murderers of a gold shipment’s guards. Greer runs a gambling house, and Powell takes a job as a bouncer in order to get close to the gang. An entertaining Western mystery based on a story by Luke Short.

Station West features only the second screen appearance of Burl Ives, who appears in an uncredited role as a bell-hop/balladeer. In all, Ives made nearly fifty films in his 40-year career.
