Format: DVD
This movie was first released in 1959(2012), in Widescreen 1.85.1, B/W and runs 87 minutes. The sound and picture quality are very good. The film starts when Deputy US Marshall Mackenzie Bovard (ROBERT TAYLOR) arrives in a stagecoach and delivers a convict to Marshall Cummings. The Marshall wanted the men who killed Deputy Davis, at the end of the rope. Bovard says, he only arrests men. He was now off to Fort Camp to find out about the last man on his list. He did not know what John Butterfield looked like. At the Fort, the Captain is told that Butterfield had held up with arms,a Stage coach and he had been discharged from the Army 2 years ago. Bovard was told what Butterfield looked like and he heads off to North Creek. There was a award of $500 for information for Butterfield. He was told Selah Jennison (TINA LOUISE) will know what Butterfield looked like, as he was Selah's husbands friend, who was now dead. Bovard could find Selah working in the laundry, and her condition could use $500. When Bovard approaches Selah, she was not interested to help. Bovard leaves the ticket for the stagecoach and asks her to come and check into the Commercial Hotel at North Creek. She would get $500 just to identify Butterfield. At North Creek, Bovard takes 2 rooms at the Hotel and reports to the local Sheriff Buck Weston(FESS PARKER). Butterfield could now be using another name. Bovard didnot trust anyone, as 'human nature was rats and the world was full of them'. This was his last job. Next, a freight wagon is driven by a man with Bovard's description and Bovard follows him and is told that his name was Johnny Bishop(JACK LORD). Even the Sheriff says that Bishop was the nicest man in town and helped everybody, and was married to Kitty(SHIRLEY HAMER) and was expecting a baby.Read more ›

The Spanish DVD version has excellent picture quality and audio - can't see how the Blu-ray would be any better - unfortunately only Portuguese and Spanish subtitles, but these can easily be turned off - as other reviewers have mentioned this is a good B&W film starring Robert Taylor, Fess Parker, Jack Lord and a host of regular western actors in an entertaining movie - not action packed but a good drama to watch with the family.

Robert Taylor after MGM 22 May 2012
By Judith E. Hanhisalo - Published on
Format: DVD
The Hangman was Robert Taylor's first independent film after leaving MGM. In later years, he would describe it as one of his failures. Like many Taylor movies, it's an unusual twist on a familiar subject. Mackenzie Bovard, a Deputy Marshal, is famous for his ability to catch criminals who are later hanged. Bovard is cynical and world weary with a poor opinion of his fellow humans. Pursuing a robbery suspect, he meets the young and lovely Tina Louise. Through his relationship with her Bovard gradually regains his faith in humanity and becomes a much warmer and more likeable person. This is far from a typical western--no fight scenes, no gorgeous scenery, no evil villains. As another reviewer noted, it's a drama set in the old West. It's about responsibility, right and wrong and personal development and growth. Taylor is excellent, as always, in his understated way. Tina Louise is good as a young woman who changes from a drab loser to a confident woman. Mabel Albertson is wonderful as a middle-aged woman who has the hots for Taylor (who can blame her?). Fess Parker, post Davy Crockett is effective as a town Sheriff and his laid back persona makes a good contrast to the driven, more intense Taylor. Perhaps not a classic but definitely worth watching and owning.

The Search for a Wanted Man 3 Sept. 2014
By Acute Observer - Published on
Format: DVD
The Hangman, 1959 film

A Deputy US Marshal is after John Butterfield for robbery-murder. Bovart is the toughest lawman in the territory. He goes to the Army post then to a town to look around. Who passed those stolen coins? “Money talks.” Bovart walks around the town to look the man. Mrs. Ceila Jennison arrives late. She will make a sign when she recognizes the wanted man. Men fight to create action. Bovart trust no one. Buck Weston is the Sheriff. At night Mrs. Jennison gives a warning letter to Mr. Bishop! There is comedy when Mrs. Jennison walks to that gate. [Without a hat?] Bovart notices Bishop’s actions. He follows Ceila out of town and they talk. [That dip in the pond seems designed to attract customers. It isn’t part of the story.]

Bovart talks to Big Murphy; can he identify Butterfield? Can Bovart tell if Ceila left her room? Yes, he follows her to a house. She warns Johnny (who won’t leave his wife). There are gunshots. “I missed him.” Bovart meets Ceila to learn more. The next morning Bovart acts to find Johnny. Was there a trick to save Johnny? Bovart rides south toward the border to catch that wagon. Later Bovart tells Ceila about his past, how he became a lawman. He gives her advice. Johnny has friends who want to help him to escape. “He got away!” Bovart shoots and misses him. He decides its time to go to California for a new life. There is a surprise at the end.

This is an interesting story about personal relationships. It is set in the Old West but could be a modern parable. The actual history of the Old West is more interesting than most dramas. The classic westerns of the 1930s-1940s involved conflicts between homesteaders and small ranchers against the big ranchers or cattle barons. These were inspired by the Johnson County War in 1892 Wyoming.
