RANDOLPH SCOTT COLLECTION
THE TALL T Pat Brennan (Western legend Randolph Scott, Comanche Station) is a man who finds himself in the middle of a bad situation. Having gambled his horse away, he kindly accepts a ride from Willard (John Hubbard,The Mummy’s Tomb) and Doretta Mims (Maureen O'Sullivan,A Day at the Races) aboard their stagecoach. But when it is hijacked by a trio of merciless bandits, led by the especially heartless Frank Usher (Richard Boone,The Shootist) all hell breaks loose and it is up to Brennan and his companions to hatch a cunning plan to escape with their lives. Based on a story by revered author Elmore Leonard (3:10 to Yuma), The Tall T is a taut and thrilling Western from respected genre director Budd Boetticher (Ride Lonesome).
DECISION AT SUNDOWN
At last the search was over ... now he was face-to-face with the killers who had dishonoured his wife! Tough-as-leather gunslinger Bart Allison (Western legend Randolph Scott,Buchanan Rides Alone) rides into town intending to exact revenge on local roughneck Tate Kimbrough (John Carroll, Only Angels Have Wings), for kidnapping his wife. But it seems both men have blood on their hands over the woman's shock suicide. Coming to terms with their actions, their violent past and their haunted destiny, both men must not only face the truth but each other for one mighty showdown to make things right once and for all. A tense and consequential trip into the Western terrain from respected genre director Budd Boetticher (The Tall T), Decision at Sundown captures the brutal essence of small town justice.
BUCHANAN RIDES ALONE
The Noose was always waiting for a stranger like Buchanan. Making the arduous journey from Mexico back home to West Texas, exhausted mercenary Tom Buchanan (Western legend Randolph Scott,Ride The High Country) rests his horse in an otherwise quiet border town. But all is not what it seems and he soon discovers that almost every resident - from crooked sheriff Lew (Barry Kelley,The Manchurian Candidate) through to the shifty-eyed innkeeper - is a member of the prominent Agry family. Corruption is widespread and when Buchanan steps to the defence of Juan de la Vega (Manuel Rojas), a young man about to be lynched for shooting the town drunk, he too finds himself on the wrong side of the law. A classy Western from genre veteran Budd Boetticher (The Tall T, Decision At Sundown), Buchanan Rides Alone is a scorching journey into a dangerous and unforgiving township.
Bounty hunter Ben Brigade (tall-in-the saddle Western hero Randolph Scott, Comanche Station) is a man of action and honour. He ventures to California with prisoner Billy John (James Best, Sheriff Rosco Coltrane from The Dukes of Hazzard), but has a mind to use him to lure an even bigger fish – Billy John’s evil brother Frank (Western legend Lee Van Cleef, The Good, The Bad and The Ugly). But at a frontier post the two find themselves in the middle of a Native American assault and are joined by the alluring Widow Lane (Karen Steele, Decision at Sundown) who decides to accompany them on their perilous journey to Santa Cruz. Also featuring Oscar® winner James Coburn (Affliction) and Pernell Roberts (Trapper John M.D), Ride Lonesome is a rip-roaring Western classic from respected filmmaker Budd Boetticher (Seven Men from Now) and writer Burt Kennedy (The War Wagon).
Staunch cowboy Jefferson Cody (Western legend Randolph Scott, Rage at Dawn) discovers a captive white woman living within the Comanche tribe and sets about securing her freedom. But there is more to her than meets the eye, as Cody soon learns the identity of this mystery woman, Nancy Lowe (Nancy Gates, The Gunfight at Dodge City), and realises there is a $5,000 reward offered by her husband for her return, dead or alive! The two disparate riders not only face three ruthless bounty hunters also keen on the reward, but must brave the warring Comanches in order to make it home safe.
Directed by respected Western veteran Budd Boetticher (The Tall T, Decision at Sundown), capturing the gritty action and suspense of the era, Comanche Station is a true genre classic.
