Beauregard "Bo" Decker and Virgil Blessing set out from their ranch in Montana to Phoenix, Arizona on the bus, so Bo can participate in a big rodeo. Bo is a brash, obnoxious, at times rather dislikable young man, skilled at ridin' and rustlin' and not much more. Bo has in his mind that there in the big city, he's going to find "an angel" and take possession of her. In Phoenix, he meets Cherie. She had enough gumption to get out of Arkansas, and is now trying to earn enough money to get to L.A. But Cherie isn't quite ready to become Bo's personal angel, even if it would get her out of a dive girlie club!

Kings Row ( Visual )
1 edition published in 1940 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Kings Row was well ahead of its time, anticipating fifties melodramas such as Peyton Place and those of Sirk, Minnelli et al., in its subversive view of small town America. The scriptwriter Casey Robinson takes most of the credit for managing to win the approval of Production Code officials during the repressive Breen and post-Breen years. Incest in the novel is thinly disguised in the film as hereditary insanity. Leg amputation is virtually synonymous with castration. The American doctor-fathers are middle class monsters while positive values are inverted almost exclusively in European immigrants and the working class. Religion rates no mention in a world clearly polarised between good and evil. The young people's struggle to overcome obstacles is heightened to the point of self parody as melodrama of triumph. Visual design was mainly the work of Menzies (who storyboarded the whole film) and Wong Howe
