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.

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 --This text refers to the DVD edition.

Most of us now know the general theme of this movie; a classic western plot of someone wrongly accused but then being given a chance to right some wrongs and incidentally achieve a measure of revenge or justice against those who wronged him in the first place. But of course it is not as simple as that and the acting is excellent, drawing us into the characters and the story.
This was made after Eastwood's three 'Dollars' movies, but has a totally different flavour, showing how different ways of making the films can have different results even if the character types might initially appear to be the same. Definitely one for the collection even if it is not in the class of the all time greats.
The DVD is a straight copy of the colour print, optimised for 16:9 with minimal hop and weave, and although there is quite a lot of grain visible at the beginning of the film it improves as the film progresses. The sound is only mono in each of the various languages, and the only extras are scene selections and the original theatrical trailer.
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
'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
(I bought this Blu-ray, a region 'A' some while before it's HD release in the U.K)
Many films of yester-year are because of the way they are filmed are more
difficult to upgrade to a good HD standard, many of course benefit greatly by the
process, the picture quality is O.K maybe not what you'd hope for, however that
doesn't affect ones enjoyment of what is a good western.
Fortunately for your sanity, there were some excellent actors making what could be made from a creaky script, and Clint was as good as he was allowed to be - and looked cool in blue shirt, badge, and impressive victory hat. Otherwise, it was a blue ray waste - no extras - literally, NO extras. Compare this with the rich additions to Fistfull, Few More and G, B and U.
As I said, a big disappointment!
