Released 1956
Distributor Warner Bros.

This first in a series of unique Randolph Scott/Budd Boetticher collaborations defines the phrase “adult western” which was primarily used to describe tv shows of the late 50s. This is a textless version of the trailer, made for foreign use, with backgrounds devoid of title cards.

About Tim Hunter

Tim Hunter is the director of River’s Edge, Tex, Saint of Fort Washington, and other features. In TV, he has directed episodes of Twin Peaks, Homicide, the Beverly Hills 90210 pilot, and most recently episodes of Mad Men, Dexter, American Horror Story, Hannibal and others.  Although he doesn’t see retirement from directing coming anytime too soon, Hunter spends much of his down time on an editing bench in Sante Fe cleaning, restoring and repairing old 16mm prints – presumably good for the soul as well as the prints.
