Product Description

Patience is his nature. Revenge is his game. Alan Ladd stars in Aaron Spelling's Western about a man on a mission. After his home is burned to the ground by Yankees at the end of the Civil War, impoverished Mitch (Ladd) and his very pregnant wife take to the road in their wagon. His wife begins to feel unwell and Mitch hurriedly drives to the nearest frontier town for medical treatment. Met with indifference and lack of compassion he is unable to pay for the medicine prescribed and his wife dies. Consumed with guilt, the townspeople offer Ladd the job of deputy sheriff and as the years pass, he finds himself a respected member of the peaceful community. On the surface he is a model citizen, but he festers with the memory of his tragic loss, and he hatches a plan for revenge, to bring the town to its knees...

Format: DVD
One foot in Hell is the last western Alan Ladd made, in it he looks careworn and indifferent, which is appropriate for the character he plays. The film is unusual in that there are no clearly defined "goodies" and "baddies" and there are a few twists in the tale that kept me interested until the end. By far the worst thing about the film is Don Murray, who is far too wholesome to play a drunk, which made the many scenes where he was drinking seem like something out of a bad american sitcom, but that aside, the rest of the actors do a good job, especially Alan Ladd, who for once acts his size. Watching the movie you could imagine that his character here could be Shane a few years later. I have the French DVD (Les Hors-La-Loi) from the Western de Legende series, the picture quality is fabulous for a movie from 1960 and contains a bunch of extra features (only in French though) - I wish we could have this type of series in the UK, every DVD that I have bought from it has been lovingly restored. Highly recommended.

Format: DVD
When an impoverished man (Alan Ladd) brings his ill and pregnant wife (Rachel Stephens) to a new town, their indifference and lack of compassion results in his wife's death. Feeling guilty, the town offers penance by making him a deputy sheriff and welcome him into the community. While on the surface a model citizen, he secretly plots a terrible revenge on the town to avenge his wife. To this end, he recruits a drunken ex-soldier (Don Murray), a prostitute (Dolores Michaels) and two gunslingers (Dan O'Herlihy, Barry Coe). While an intriguing and fresh premise for a western, this is no HIGH PLAINS DRIFTER. Ladd, in his most unsympathetic role, isn't a strong enough actor to register the rage simmering underneath his complacent surface. It doesn't help that he looks terrible, aged and bloated. The director James B. Clark doesn't have the edginess that would have increased the tension quotient that a film like this requires. Still, the intriguing posit is enticing enough to keep one entertained through out it all. William C. Mellor (A PLACE IN THE SUN,) did the CinemaScope lensing and Dominic Frontiere is responsible for the routine score. With Larry Gates and Karl Swenson.

The Fox DVD from Spain is a decent anamorphic wide screen CinemaScope (2.35) transfer with both English and Spanish audio options.

A good film from Alan Ladd. Great to have in my western collection. Widescreen, however, the disc tended to stutter quite often which was annoying, whether my player needs cleaned or it is the actual disc don't know yet.

Alan Ladd made a lot of westerns in the 1950s. This is one of his later movies of the decade. In this one, he is something of an anti hero as the plot has him seeking revenge. An unusual story makes this movie stand out.
