Great Scott Triple Feature
Terence Allen | Atlanta, GA USA | 11/28/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is one of two triple feature Randolph Scott Western DVDs produced by Warner Brothers. This is a great collection, featuring two very solid Scott Westerns, Colt .45 and Fort Worth, plus one of his very best, Tall Man Riding.

Fort Worth features Scott as a newspaperman who publishes a newspaper to the detriment of outlaw Ray Teal and his gang. Scott is also not sure he can trust an old friend played by David Brian, who is Fort Worth's leading citizen. The movie keeps you guessing about Brian's true intentions right up to the end of the film. A solid film with entertaining performances from Scott, Brian, Teal, and Phyllis Thaxter.

Colt .45 is even better. It stars Scott as a gun salesman working to recover two .45s from an outlaw who stole them from Scott and started a crime spree. Scott, Ruth Roman, Zachary Scott (as the villain), Alan Hale, Chief Thundercloud, and Lloyd Bridges make up a wonderful cast.

But the best film on the DVD is Tall Man Riding, which proves that Scott had the secret to the formula that worked so well in his films with great director Budd Boetticher, who directed Scott in most of his best films, including Seven Men From Now, The Tall T, Ride Lonesome, and Comanche Station. This film has a lot of the same elements of the Scott/Boetticher films - a hero bent on revenge, torn between a woman from his past and a woman in his present who is drawn to help him, overwhelming forces against him, and a great twist to the story.

In Tall Man Riding, Scott plays a cowboy back in town after five years. Back then, he was dating the daughter of the most powerful rancher in town, but was whipped and driven out of town by the rancher. Scott comes back to town seeking revenge as the rancher is fighting it out with the local saloon owner for control of the territory. Scott's ex, played by Dorothy Malone, has remarried, and Scott accidently comes to her husband's rescue. Soon, Scott finds himself in the middle of the war between the rancher and the saloon owner, and between his old love and the saloon owner's girl, who provides Scott with valuable information.

This film features great acting, writing, and lots of action. It actually ranks its own release on DVD, but if this was the only way that Scott fans could get it on DVd, it's worth it to buy it with two other fine films. But Tall Man Riding all by itself makes this collection worth owning."
This triple feature set of Randolph Scott is a winner!
John Dziadecki | Louisville, CO USA | 12/13/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Warner Brothers is to be commended for assembling this triple feature set of classic Randolph Scott films on a single two-sided DVD. Although this is not Scott's best work -- have a look at "7 Men from Now" or "Ride the High Country" -- these B-westerns are very, very entertaining and are not to be missed by any fan of westerns or good stories.

The early 1950s Technicolor looks great and the transfers appear to have been made from very good source materials. I only wish WB would have made at least a bare bones scene selection menu and/or added trailers for these and other Scott films. Also, anamorphically enhanced transfers would be nice considering the current proliferation of 16x9 monitors.

I shied away from buying this disc initially because these are indeed B-movies and not Scott's best work but I found them to be very, very enjoyable westerns. So much so that I'm ordering the other WB set of Scott's westerns. Sit back, relax and allow yourself to watch Randolph Scott ride again! (Pass me the popcorn, please.)"
You'd do it for Randolph Scott

"That was a line from Blazing Saddles, but it sums up why you should get this triple feature. I think Warner Bros. has come up with a great idea by packaging movies like this. You get three pretty good movies for the price of one. The movie transfers are crystal clear and even more beautiful than I remembered. The photography in the western of this time is some of the finest I have seen. The stories are not just good guy against bad guy, they are a little more than that. Randolph Scott is a prototypical cowboy. Tall and lean with a hint of swagger and accent. Make no mistake though, he never protrayed a cowboy as a gunslinger. Scott's hero was educated, strong, and ethical."
