HANG 'EM HIGH (1968)

Starring: Clint Eastwood
Director: Ted Post

Clint Eastwood's first stateside spaghetti Western is a good one, with the star out to get the vigilantes who tried to hang him for a murder he didn't commit. Pat Hingle is the hangin' judge who gives Clint his license to hunt, and Ben Johnson is the marshal who saves his life. Ed Begley, Sr. is memorable as the leader of the vigilantes.

Steely avenger (Eastwood) sets out to take care of those varmints who strung him up and left him for dead. Played in Clint Eastwood's usual flinty manner, should please non-discriminating Western buffs. (114 mins.)

My Rating: **1/2
