Critic Reviews for The Hangman

All Critics (2)

Robert Taylor, known as The Hangman, carries this taut Western as the famed deputy marshal who always gets his man.

April 20, 2016 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

The black-and-white The Hangman feels rather low-budget, and it results in some inspired moments.
