The Tall T

The Tall T is a 1957 Randolph Scott Western. Maureen O'Sullivan and Henry Silva are also in it. Budd Boetticher directs. Randolph Scott is a classic, and this story is a traditional western. It does maintain interest. It may be just a bit predictable, but it's a 1950's era western, so you know what to expect anyway, right?

via youtube:

Images Journal lists it as one of the 30 great Westerns. Forgotten Classics of Yesteryear says,
It is a story where the villains are as honorable as the heroes, at least in their own way. It is a story that has been told since the first cowboy drove his first herd of cattle. While it is an old story, The Tall T is one of its best incarnations.
Rotten Tomatoes doesn't have a critics score, but the audience score is 82%.
