Saddle Up: This Monday, TCM, as part of their Summer Under the Stars, celebrates the westerns of Randolph Scott. This is a movie banquet for me.
This western feast includes three of the seven movies where Budd Boetticher directed Scott. These have become classic in the genre, most were scripted by Burt Kennedy.
They feature spectacular landscapes; terse dialogue and all were low budget that looked like a million bucks.
“Shoot-Out at Medicine Bend” was James Garner’s first western.
“Ride Lonesome” was the debut for James Coburn.
