Seven Men From Now Reviews
With enough edge grit and difference
To be lesser known
And one of the best of the great Lee Marvin roles
An aging former sheriff has a significant guilt streak for a string of events in his former town that led to the death of his wife. He is now tracking down the men responsible and is on his way to find them when he comes across some settlers heading the same direction. He agrees to ride with them to keep them safe. As they discover more and more of his story, they try to talk him into being at peace with himself first. Will they convince the sheriff he's a good man either way, whether he gets revenge or not?
"Sure is a wild country. I like wild things."
Budd Boetticher, director of The Tall T, Ride Lonesome, Comanche Station, A Time for Dying, Decision at Sundown, The Killer is Loose, and City Beneath the Sea, delivers Seven Men from Now. The storyline for this picture is interesting and has a classic western feel to it. The acting is very good and the cast includes Randolph Scott, Gail Russell, Lee Marvin, and Don Barry.
"They ever catch up to the fellas that done it?"
I came across this a long time ago via Fios recommendations and decided to give it a viewing finally. This is a classic western with interesting characters and well portrayed character development. I really enjoyed how this was put together. I recommend this to fans of the western genre.
"I'd feel a whole lot better if you rode along with us."
