Product Description

Four old retired Texas Rangers help clean up the small town of Boulder which is run by the crooked Mayor Nard Lundy and his stooges...Amos Polk, the drunken judge, along with the trigger-happy Sheriff Clyde Barnes and his corrupt deputies. The foursome realise their days of daring-dos are long gone and that they re too old to be drawing guns anymore, so with hilarious results, they outsmart the villains by using just their combined wits. A great movie that's fun for all the family.

4.0 out of 5 stars Amusing, poignant? 19 Jan 2013
Format:DVD
The film quality is pretty poor at times, a line down the side of the screen, editing 'jumps', colour and sound obviously dated in style and presentation. This SO reminded me of the 'B' movies cinemas would offer us back in the dying days of numerous cinemas in the 60's. At 70 minutes long, it's enough.
It is amusing, almost sad (in the old sense of the word) and it did not contain the shoot-up's in such graphic detail as today's films seem to deem necessary.

So, you will enjoy, but be amused by the presentation, the nostalgia, the entertainment.

3.0 out of 5 stars Worth the Effort 7 July 2009
Format:DVD
One of the first "movie of the week" tv films this has a really all star cast of aged heroes. Some quite funny bits make this one or two to watch as you have both the movies here. Just alittle tired however as the Western format became in the end.

This DVD was delivered withing three days and is considered very good value. However on the down side the film was a little slow paced and predicable at times.

3.0 out of 5 stars No Ranger retires perpendicular 17 July 2004
By Steven Hellerstedt - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Nasty and corrupt Mayor Nard Lundy (Edward Andrews) is challenged by idealistic Jeff Rose (Ricky Nelson) in an upcoming election. Lundy has Sheriff Clyde Barnes (Jack Elam) rough the young upstart up some. Rose's visiting father-in-law, retired Texas Ranger Captain Oren Hayes (Pat O'Brien) sends an urgent telegraph to three of his former command (Walter Brennan, Chill Wills and Edgar Buchanan) to come to Boulder immediately and help him clean up the town.
THE OVER-THE-HILL GANG is a 1969 made-for-television movie that was popular enough at the time to lead to a sequel a year later. For old movie fans it's hard to beat the appeal of this veteran character actor laden movie. It's fun to see them play off each other and confront a situation that their advancing years have forced them to deal with more with guile than brute force. What's not so much fun is seeing them saddled with this tired, predictable plot.
Brennan and Buchanan shine brightest in this one; Brennan as the gun slinger who's lost a bit of speed on his quick draw and Buchanan as the scout who's eyesight has deteriorated to the point that he's drawing his guns on stuffed and mounted bears. With a better script, and a more delicate and penetrating examination of what it feels like to suddenly find yourself old and in the way, this one could have been a classic for the ages rather than an amusing piece of fluff.
The print transfer to dvd is so-so. Some of the night scenes are muddy and it's hard to make out what's happening. The dvd also comes with the Little Rascals' short "Hooky Spooky."
Fans of old movies should enjoy the veteran character actors in this, although they may agree that the folks in front of the camera in THE OVER-THE-HILL GANG deserved far better.

3.0 out of 5 stars One more chance to see some ol' western stars 15 Mar 2004
By hey_steve - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
The technical part of this review refers to the Brentwood Home Video or BCI Eclipse version.
From the Aaron Spelling stable of TV movies comes this tale with Ricky Nelson (and his wife Kris Nelson) as an idealistic couple. Ricky is running for Mayor of a small western town against Edward Andrews who plays a corrupt town boss. Jack Elam is his Sheriff and Andy Devine is his Judge, both firmly entrenched in his back pocket.
Pat O'Brien comes to town as Ricky Nelson's father-in-law, a retired Texas Ranger who rounds up his old partners (Walter Brennan, Edgar Buchanan and Chill Wills)!!! Throw in Gypsy Rose Lee as the owner of the local saloon and you got yourself a pretty good (for TV) rip-snorting western. You know how it's going to play out, but watching the all these stars in action makes up for a sub-par script.
Unfortunately the transfer is from a well-used print that looks like it was recorded in long play mode. At times, scenes taking place at night are almost unwatchable. But the chance to see these stars of westerns in their later years is a treat you should not miss if you're a fan of the western genre.
Brentwood/BCI put in their usual extras, six chapter stops, a DVD dictionary, trivia game and a short subject (Hal Roach's "Little Rascals"). This movie is also in a 10 pack of westerns at about triple the price for this one film from Brentwood Home Video called "The Wild West" and is available from Amazon.com.
