Movies Hang ’em High (1968, Clint Eastwood, Inger Stevens) Published 3 months ago on December 1, 2018 This was the first Hollywood attempt to capitalise on Clint Eastwood’s success as The Man with No Name and to bring him into the comfortable fold of American stars in American films. Here, he plays Jed Cooper, a rancher mistakenly identified as a murderer and cattle thief by a lynch mob. With little care for the due process of law, the mob hangs him. At the last minute he is cut down by Ben Johnson, a passing marshall. Taken to judge Pat Hingle, Eastwood explains what has happened and finds himself deputised as a lawman, so long as he finds the men who tried to hang him and brings them back for trial. Blithely ignoring the judge’s instructions, Eastwood re-dons his avenging angel identity and goes gunning for each of the men. Killing them one by one, Eastwood finally faces death again when the leader of the lynch mob, Ed Begley, shoots him. However, on hand is Inger Stevens, a shopkeeper who has fallen in love with Eastwood. She nurses him back to health and he sets off once again to face death when he hunts Begley… Following his successes in Sergio Leone’s A Fistful of Dollars, For a Few Dollars More and The Good the Bad and the Ugly, Hollywood realised that the actor who had been written off as a mere TV star was now someone with an international reputation capable of ‘opening a movie’ and it was left to director Ted Post, with whom Eastwood had worked on Rawhide, to find a suitable vehicle for him. production details USA | 114 minutes | 1968 Director: Ted Post Writers: Leonard Freeman, Mel Goldberg cast Clint Eastwood as Marshal Jed Cooper Inger Stevens as Rachel Warren Ed Begley as Captain Wilson Pat Hingle as Judge Adam Fenton Ben Johnson as Marshal Dave Bliss Bruce Dern as Miller Charles McGraw as Sheriff Ray Calhoun Ruth White as Madame Sophie Alan Hale Jr. as Matt Stone L.Q.
