From Amazon.co.uk

After starring in the now-legendary Dollars trilogy of spaghetti Westerns for Italian director Sergio Leone, Clint Eastwood became a box-office star and imported the style of those classic shoot-em-ups for this 1967 Western directed by Ted Post, with whom Eastwood had worked during their days on the television series Rawhide. Eastwood plays an innocent rancher who is mistaken for a cattle rustler and sentenced to hang by an angry mob. When he is saved from the noose by a passing lawman, he embarks on a renegade campaign of vengeance against the men who attempted to lynch him. Hang 'Em High offers a number of memorable moments and stylistic flourishes, and features a superb supporting cast of Western veterans, including Ben Johnson, Ed Begley, Pat Hingle, Dennis Hopper, Bruce Dern, LQ Jones, and the "Skipper" himself, Alan Hale Jr Made just three years before Dirty Harry, the film marked a turning point for Eastwood, who would soon move into a prolific period of contemporary thrillers. --Jeff Shannon, Amazon.com

Product Description

In 1873 Oklahoma, Jed Cooper (Oscar® winner Clint Eastwood*), wrongly accused of being a rustler, is lynched by a crooked lawman (Ed Begley) and a band of vigilantes. But unbeknownst to his would-be killers, Cooper is still alive. After becoming a deputy marshal, the sly, iron-willed Cooper sets out after the vigilantes, hell-bent on justice--and vengeance--in this electrifying classic.

*2004, Million Dollar Baby, Best Picture (with Albert S. Ruddy and Tom Rosenberg), Directing; 1994, Irving G. Thalberg Memorial Award; 1992, Unforgiven, Best Picture, Directing.

Format:DVD
Despite the title, Hang 'Em High, starring Clint Eastwood, is not a particularly violent movie; in fact, it contains some moral scenarios that seek to capture the pioneering spirit (and the pioneering justice system) of the old Wild West.

The basis of the plot is that Jed (Clint) is hanged by an enthusiastic lynch mob of vigilantes who mistake him for a murderer and cattle rustler. Miraculously, he survives and is cleared of all charges when brought before a proper court of law. The poacher then turns gamekeeper as Jed becomes a Marshall and sets out for vengeance.

As well as being hanged, he is also gunned down at one point and is even attacked by an alsation dog - so, it's quite unusual to see Big Clint as vulnerable (and human) as he is here compared to many of his other offerings.

This is not a gritty tale. Hang 'Em High is actually rather wholesome (it includes romance, honour and a disillusionment with violence). This makes the film much more of a traditional type of Western rather than an alternative, or spaghetti, Western.

Moral undertones permeate this film (capital punishment, prison conditions, summary justice) and neither the acting or the soundtrack is particularly memorable.

Still, it's watchable, and if you're an Eastwood fan you'll find it to be a mildly amusing 110 minutes.

2.0 out of 5 stars Shocking !! 9 July 2011
Format:Blu-ray
I rarely write reviews but having just seen this awful transfer I felt compelled to put finger to keyboard. This is probably the worst picture quality bluray I have ever seen. I'm not a huge fan of the film but as a Clint Eastwood die-hard this was essential to my collection. I already own a standard def copy and thought this would have been a good upgrade (it came as part of the Clint Eastwood bluray set along with the Dollars trilogy).

Sadly, and even from the opening scene of the film you can see from the grain and the dirt present in abundance that this transfer is left severely lacking. It gets worse - more times than I care to remember motion shots were ruined by colour trails, the whole depth of colour itself often wavers and the picture throughout is permeated by a softness not befitting the medium.

Okay folks it was made in 1968, fair enough. And it does have some good points - close up scenes reveal more detail, and darker indoor scenes show greater contrast and depth of colour palette. BUT, having watched "The Searchers", (1956)on bluray and been bowled over by the latter's virtually flawless transfer quality, I suggest Eastwood fans should in this instance save up their cash for a good upscaling dvd player and buy this film on standard def.

4.0 out of 5 stars 'A CLASSIC 'EASTWOOD' WESTERN' 11 May 2014
By rbmusicman TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray
'Jed Cooper' (Eastwood) is going about his legitimate business driving
a small herd of cattle he'd purchased.
He is stopped by 'Rancher' along with a crooked 'Lawman' and a band
of vigilante's, 'Jed' is accused of rustling the cattle and the murder of
the legal owners of the cattle, they will not listen to what 'Jed' has to say
on the matter, they elect to string up and leave him dangling on the end
of a rope.
They really should have made sure he was dead.
A Marshall happens by and cuts barely alive 'Jed' down, he is taken to
the prison wagon the Marshall is using to carry prisoners to 'Fort Grant'
to stand trial.
'Judge Fenton' of 'Fort Grant' has the reputation as a 'hanging-Judge.
The Judge knows of 'Jed' who was once a lawman, and offers him a job
as a Marshall to help round up criminals bringing them to trial.
'Jed now wears a badge again, he seeks revenge, he intends to hunt down
those that had wronged him.
When one of those present during the incident gives himself up, a list of
names is assembled, now 'Jed' has a warrant to go after them.
In Town Shop-Keeper 'Rachel Warren' checks out all prisoners brought into
'Fort Grant' she seeks vengeance for the killing of her husband some years
earlier.
'Jed' is instructed by the Judge to bring those who'd strung him up in alive
to face trial.
It's not really what 'Jed' has in mind.
This is an 'Eastwood' Classic-Western, perhaps minus the level of gun-play
we'd seen during 'Clint's' Spaghetti movies, however it's a sound story-line
with some action-sequences with and without gun-play as it leads toward it's
ultimate climax.
(I bought this Blu-ray, a region 'A' some while before it's HD release in the U.

3.0 out of 5 stars Rare: a somewhat ordinary Eastwood film? 5 Aug 2013
Format:DVD
This is another collaboration for Clint Eastwood with director Ted Post.
It"s not bad,but I do wonder just how magnificient a job Eastwood would have made of it had he directed the film himself.But of course this was made in 1968 and he was still learning his trade.
The moralistic story flows along slowly,with a strong suporting role from Pat Hingle as the judge.
Hanging is the key element of the film (both as legal punishment and as a mechanism used by lynch-mobs).I believe the tone of the film shows a stance against capital punishment,a subject later explored by Eastwood and Post in Magnum Force - Special Edition [DVD] in the Dirty Harry series.
A good film but not as strong as Eastwoods work under Sergio Leone in his spaghetti westerns.
