Decision at Sundown (1957)

Decision at Sundown seems like an attempt to make a political statement, as was popular in some Westerns of the period (High Noon, Shane, 3:10 to Yuma, etc.). However, director Budd Boetticher's even, brisk touch cuts right through the preachiness, at least for the first hour or so. It works well enough to get you riled up. Bart Allison (Randolph Scott) rides into Sundown with the goal of killing Tate Kimbrough (John Carroll), who had something to do with the loss of his wife. Scott is angrier and more emotional here, and with a comic relief partner (Noah Beery Jr.); they both end up hiding in a stable while the bad guys contemplate their next move. Meanwhile, a doctor (John Archer) decides that he liked Sundown better before Tate arrived in it and took over everything. Boetticher's sometime girlfriend Karen Steele appears, but her role is far less interesting than the one she would play in Ride Lonesome. All in all though, this is a powerful effort. Charles Lang wrote the screenplay. read more...

Buchanan Rides Alone (1958)

Randolph Scott plays the title role in Budd Boetticher's Buchana Rides Alone, as a man who rides into a Mexican border town with a huge smile on his face, ready to head back to Texas to start his own ranch. But first he wants a steak, a whisky and a bed. Unfortunately, he steps into the middle of a fracas and winds up in trouble again. This is a lighter effort than usual, with more of a male bonding angle. It's also the most needlessly complicated of the series. Charles Lang wrote the screenplay, based on a novel by Jonas Ward, though Burt Kennedy reportedly helped (without credit). read more...

Lifeboat (1944)

It's hard to imagine the mischievous Alfred Hitchcock as someone who would get patriotic and pitch in to the war effort. But he did; he made two war shorts, Bon Voyage (1944) and Aventure malgache (1944), and his Lifeboat is a tightly-wound film whose plot hinges on wartime attitudes. read more...
