Larry Karaszewski on

The Meanest Men in the West

Released 1962
Distributor National Broadcasting Company

This theatrical mashup of TV’s The Virginian comes with a heavyweight pedigree—Sam Fuller is one of the directors and the stars include Charles Grodin, Lee Marvin, and Charles Bronson. Pity the poor movie editors, they were working with material from two separate episodes, 1962’s It Tolls For Thee and Reckoning from 1967.
