  • Brotherdeacon's rating of the film The Tall Stranger

    For a scope film, the pan and scan I saw was seriously cramped. I doubt the scope version was a whole lot better, since they never left Los Angeles to shoot any panoramic Western scenery. Nothing really noteworthy except Virginia Mayo's decolettage, the fierce fist fights, Leo Gordon as a white hat, and watching Joel McRae riding a horse like he was born on it. An average telling of Louis L'Amour.
