The Tall T 1957 Randolph Scott Western Thriller
Stars: Randolph Scott, Richard Boone, Maureen O’Sullivan
The Tall T Story Line. Having lost his horse in a bet, Pat Brennan hitches a ride with a stagecoach carrying newlyweds, Willard and Doretta Mims. At the next station the coach and its passengers fall into the hands of a trio of outlaws headed by a man named Usher. When Usher learns that Doretta is the daughter of a rich copper-mine owner, he decides to hold her for ransom. Tension builds over the next 24 hours as Usher awaits a response to his demands and as a romantic attachment grows between Brennan and Doretta.
The Tall T is a tense Elmore Leonard story by the two-stepping Boetticher and Kennedy. A false leisurely beginning turns into a taut ride to the end. You’re in the hands of masters when Randolph Scott asks Henry Silva what happened to the boy!
Tagline: Taut! Torrid! Tremendous! T Is for Terror!
