What’s On Now Now NOW?! Ted Post’s “HANG ‘EM HIGH” (1968) Starring Clint Eastwood!!!

As It’s Said In The Film…

All Right, Now That Makes Three Mistakes We’ve Made. The Money. We Hung An Innocent Man. And We Didn’t Finish The Job. We Can’t Undo The First Two. But We Can Still Finish The Job.

That Really Does Sum Up This Classic Western.

HANG ‘EM HIGH

…Stars…

CLINT EASTWOOD

ED BEGLEY

PAT HINGLE

BEN JOHNSON

BRUCE DERN

ALAN HALE Jr.

DENNIS HOPPER

L.Q. JONES

…And…

INGER STEVENS

πŸ˜€

Talk About Your Ensemble Cast, Eh!!!

Granted, This Is Well Before Some Of Them Were Actually Known By Anyone…

…But Think About Doing A Movie Today With As Many Stars As This Flick Boasts!!

Yeah.

It Would Sure Cost The Studio A Pretty Penny, That’s A BIG FO SHO!!!

πŸ˜€

HANG ‘EM HIGH

…Is One Of THE Most Fun Westerns You’re Likely To Ever Find…

…And I’m Sure There Are Plenty Of You Out There Who Could Back Me Up On That Statement.

Am I Right, Or Am I Right?!

Yeah.

Exactly.

I’m Right.

πŸ˜‰

The Actors Are Spot On.

The Production Is Damn Near Spotless.

The Score Is Pulse-Poundingly-Perfect.

This Is Film-Making At Its Finest, So Far As Westerns Are Considered.

You See…

…The Director…

TED POST

…Had Some Hella Experience In The Western Genera.

Have Y’all Ever Heard Of Shows Like…

GUNSMOKE

…Or…

RAWHIDE

…Or…

THE RIFLEMAN

??? ???

Well…

…As It So Happens, Mr. POST Did Episodes For Each Of Those Series…

…Plus A Bundle More Episodes For A Bundle Of Other Shows!

The Man KNOWS Westerns.

Period.

And That Is Perfectly Evident Here, With…

HANG ‘EM HIGH

!!! !!!

πŸ˜€

CLINT EASTWOOD

…Is…

“JED COOPER”

…And Our Hang’ee.

ED BEGLEY And His Crew Are The Hang’ers.

They Leave Our Man COOPER Strung-Up By The Neck In A Tree.

Along Comes A Marshall (BEN JOHNSON) And He Discovers COOPER Swinging From A Noose.

Except For One Thing…

…COOPER AIN’T DEAD!

(*QUE THE AWESOME MUSIC*)

Yeah.

Now Ole COOPER Is Set Upon Avenging Himself!

SO WHAT’S GONNA HAPPEN?!?!?!

Well…

…I’d Suggest Watching It If You REALLY WANNA KNOW!!!

πŸ˜‰

Like I Said, My Peeps…

HANG ‘EM HIGH

…Is Exceptionally Fun!

And YES, It’s Totally Worth The (almost) 2-Hours You’ll Spend Watching It!

ENJOY, Kiddies!!

ENJOY, INDEED!!!
