San Antonio (Warner 1945, Errol Flynn, Alexis Smith)



This Technicolor Western features Errol Flynn as a cattleman who uncovers the rustling operation being operated from the saloon owned by Paul Kelly. Alexis Smith sings in the saloon, and Flynn thinks she might be in on the scheme, but that doesn’t prevent him from romancing her. Pleasant enough, with action, romance, and a few songs thrown in.

Alexis Smith, who costars in San Antonio, had a formidable screen career as a second-string leading lady before retiring in 1960. A decade later she returned to acting, most notably in a Tony-award winning performance in Follies.

Academy Award Nominations: Best Song; Best (Color) Interior Decoration.
