I have them all already in another RANDOLPH SCOTT set , but this set is blu-Ray with lots of extras, so how could I resist!
Powerhouse Films brings out this new box set on 21 May,2018. Extras include an 80 page booklet and audio and TV interviews with BUDD BOETTICHER who directed all 5 films.
The five Scott/Boetticher films cover 1957 to 1960, a golden period for their collaboration. Good scripts, direction ,spectacular scenery at Lone Pine and the Alabama Hills. And Scott leading great supporting casts including PERNELL ROBERTS, CLAUDE AKINS, RICHARD BOONE, KAREN STEELE, JAMES BEST, NOAH BEERY.
I’d have picked a better picture of Scott for the cover – think that one comes from “The Tall T.”
Scott plays an unusually lighter character in the THE TALL T and BUCHANAN RIDES ALONE, but the other three are intense.
Looking forward to the set arriving next month.
The stark ending of RIDE LONESOME. Scott sets fire to the hanging tree.
THE TALL T
That scene at the end of DECISION AT SUNDOWN. Scott as we hardly ever see him. He may have saved the town of Sundown, but he’s had his illusions about his wife shattered and lost his best friend. A bitter man.
