HANG ‘EM HIGH (USA 1968)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.8|5.0 Stars ììì

Hang ‘Em High—run of the mill western, nothing new—runs on the idea that sometimes you can get punished when you didn’t deserve it, sometimes you can get punished when you did deserve it, and sometimes punishment can be too lenient or too harsh depending on who is running the show. The film contains terrific actors such as Clint Eastwood, Bruce Dern, Pat Hingle, Ben Johnson, and Alan Hale Jr.; but all-in-all fails to enthrall as an entertainment piece.

Storyline

After surviving a lynching, a man returns as a lawman to establish justice.

Additional Thanks

Thank you to Director Ted Post for directing effort. Thank you to Supervising Producer Robert Stambler, Producer Leonard Freeman, and Associate Producer Irving Leonard for making the film possible. Casting includes: Rachel Warren (by Inger Steven), Captain Wilson (by Ed Bagley), Sherriff Calhoun (by Charles McGraw), and Madame Peaches (by Ruth White).



Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?
