In the mid 1950's Director Budd Boetticher came together with ageing star Randolph Scott to make a remarkable group of B-Westerns under the banner of RANOWN Productions, the name was made up from the names of Randolph Scott and producer Harry Joe Brown. The first of these was SEVEN MEN FROM NOW (1956) a Batjac (John Wayne) Production. This film was painstakingly restored and released as a Special Collector's Edition in 2005.

This five-film Budd Boetticher Collection in production order is: THE TALL T (1957) DECISION AT SUNDOWN (1957) BUCHANHAN RIDES ALONE (1958) RIDE LONESOME (1959) and COMANCHE STATION (1960) Of this group the first and last two films stand out above the rest not least because they all have a cracking script by Burt Kennedy as did the aforementioned SEVEN MEN FROM NOW. These four films have gained a cult following over the years and can be regarded as mini-masterpieces!

Boetticher's characters in these films are not the usual B-Western hero / villains stereotypes, in most cases his heroes are flawed and the villains not all bad which is helped by a strong cast of supporting actors including the likes of Richard Boone, John Carroll, Craig Stevens, James Coburn and Claude Akins. Of the leading ladies Karen Steele (Mrs Budd Boetticher) appeared in two of the above Westerns others included Valerie French, Maureen O'Sullivan and Nancy Gates.

Randolph Scott is the obsessive stoic hero in these little seventy-odd minute dramas. On the release of the marvellous COMANCHE STATION in early 1960, Scott decided to rest on his laurels and retire. He was persuaded two years later to climb back in the saddle once more for Sam Pekinpah's wonderful RIDE THE HIGH COUNTRY (1962) along with fellow veteran westerner Joel McCrea.

These five movies, directed by Budd Boetticher and starring Randolph Scott, are fine examples of professional craftsmanship. There's plenty of action, some nasty angles and a great lead actor. So what if they were low-budget. They satisfy.

The Tall T:
Brennan (Randolph Scott) and Mrs. Mims (Maureen O'Sullivan) have every right to be scared. They're held captive in the hot, rocky countryside 15 miles outside of Contention. There's Billy Jack, a young kid with a gun who doesn't much like being a virgin. There's Chink, a dead-eyed killer who shot down his father when he was 12. Most of all, there's Frank Usher (Richard Boone), older and wiser than the two he runs with, and more ruthless than them both. He's the kind of man who laughs when a woman burns her hands on a hot coffee pot he could have warned her of. Brennan knows Frank Usher will have Chink and Billy Jack gun them down as soon as Usher has the ransom he demands for Mrs. Mims. Brennan and Mrs. Mims must wait and take their chances. In the meantime, we get to see some of what makes Frank Usher tick and of the kind of man Pat Brennan is.

Decision at Sundown:
This is a drama without, for 50 minutes of the 77-minute running time, any gripping motivation for Bart Allison's (Randolph Scott) hatred. We know something, probably nasty, happened to a woman named Mary and that the slick Tate Kimbrough (John Carroll) had something to do with it. But what? Allison's sick obsession with killing Kimbrough ("For three years I've hunted Kimbrough, but he didn't know it. Before I settle with him I want him to know he's being hunted."), even on Kimbrough's wedding day when Allison arrives at Sundown, seems more like a plot device than a major justification for violence. The movie's not all that bad, but not very good.

Format: DVD
I was recommended this box set by an artist, who knew that I would be off my feet for a while(the pleasures of arthritis, hmmm) and might appreciate a change of scenery, so to speak.

I sat down to watch the first one with a sense of apprehension, not really knowing what to expect from a "cowboy" movie. I only intended to watch one, out of a sense of politeness towards my friend. I ended up watching all 5 in the space of three days and had my expectations realigned. I found them all to be almost addictive viewing and most enjoyable.

These are superb films, captivating character studies in an unhurried pace that is all too sadly lacking in most films made these days. Watching them gives a real sense of the complications that exist in folk, no-one is wholly good, or bad, rather flawed or motivated by hidden issues that eventually emerge to make sense of the actions observed. Sure, the films lack the gritty reality that more recent ones contain, but that is not the point, the point is the people. One of the story lines harken back to Chaucers thieves in the Pardoners Tale, so these are stories about how people act for and against each other, not how the west was won or what life was really like in those frontier days. The storylines are ageless and this is why it is possible to watch these films almost 50 years later and still get a lot from them.

The cinematography is a lesson in less is more, or more is more if you count the long shots where the protagonists are well away from the camera, of which there are a lot. The framing of a lot of the shots are a lesson in good composition, everything where it ought to be. The digital transfer is outstanding, the scenery just looks amazing, the dirt and dust on Randolph ought to have been given mention in the credits.
