hang um high
this is my least favorite clint eastwood film. saw it at the old yonge theatre in toronto and was sqwarming in my seat waiting for it to end. it just seemed to go on for ever. a great cast, although i think ben johnson got short changed on his part. the scenes at the cabin( ala doctor shivago) with the wind and flowers AND ENDLESS staring into inger stevens eyes nearly puts you in a coma( yawn).in fact her acting could put you out cold. a serious editing might have saved this otherwise great movie.
Hang 'em High
- Dashiell B.
A fine American Western for Eastwood after the success of his Spaghetti films with Sergio Leone. Eastwood does his usual squintty-eyed, always in the right stuff a victim of a lynch mob who is deputized by Hingle to capture his would-be killers including Begley & Dern. The film takes a strong stand against capital punishment, even at a time as violent as the setting of the film, the rest of the story is OK, but not fantastic. An entertaining & gripping story about satisfactory revenge. I give it a 4.5/5.
Spaghetti Western's rule
- Man with no name
I love the way it took an Italian director to demythologize the old American western and breath a new live into what had become a stodgy predictable genre. I say good riddance to the old Hollywood cowboy code. Sergio Leone would go onto direct the 2 great westerns of all time "Once Upon a Time in the West" and "The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly. The soundtrack scored for the film is done by the genius composer Ennio Morricone who would go onto to compose some of the most recognizable scores in cinematic history.
Wish I Had The Cranberry Concession On This
This Film is such a TURKEY- that I wish I had had the Cranberry Concession at the Theater where it Premiered! Useless, Senseless, Violent Trash. The kind of film that so endears itself to the American Public. They should have cut the prints up into guitar picks- as a much wiser use of celluloid! Good Grief!
Eastwood at his most ruthless, until Dirty Harry
Jed Cooper,( Clint Eastwood) a former lawman, buys cattle unaware that he bought the herd from a rustler who mudered the rightful owner of the herd. Cooper is accused of the crime by a lynchmob who hangs him, leaving him for dead. A territorial marshal (Ben Johnson) saves him from certain death and takes Cooper before Judge Fenton (Pat Hingle) who clears him of any wrongdoing, and later deputizes Cooper to bring the lynchmob to justice.Cooper, no doubt has revenge on his mind. This is Clint Eastwood at his most ruthless, until he starred in DIRTY HARRY.
