Santa Fe is a 1951 American Western film directed by Irving Pichel and starring Randolph Scott. The film is based on the novel Santa Fe by James Vance Marshall.
In the years following the Civil War, Britt Canfield, one of four ex-Confederate brothers, heads west for a new life. Britt accepts a job with the Santa Fe Railway, whilst his three brothers find themselves on the wrong side of the law. Britt is eventually obliged to bring his brothers to justice, but the real man behind their criminal activities is gambling boss Cole Sanders.
Director Pichel, himself an actor, also narrates the film.
