Budd Boetticher United States, 1957

joey Noodles's rating of the film The Tall T

An absolutely supberb western. Save from an incredibly annoying and badly written performance from Henry Silva, this Boetticher classic is a brilliantly told 'moral' western. Everyone in this film (save Chink) is truly human, and some of the dilemmas brought about are fantastically realised. In that respect it rivals The Ox-Bow Incident, no one ends this film a winner.
