If one uses the tool Google one can find a Randolph Scott board. This writer is evidently not allowed to post links.
Guys, just started looking at this thread and now all set to get into watching Scott's films! Which ones would you suggest as a novice? I hear tall T is a good one? I love the Anthony Mann James Stewart Westerns FYI.
The Tall T is outstanding...but I'll be accused of being a Richard Boone fan for supporting that one.
As I wrote above, Randolph Scott made a previous film with Richard Boone which was absolutely dreadful. I believed the horse more. About Boone's performance a critic wrote, 'there was too much Method in his madness.' It went downhill from there. That one was Ten Wanted Men. Painful to watch those performances.
I've decided to blame the script from now on. I'm happy again.
Another great Scott (pun intended) is "Ride the High Country". It's his last film so having seen some of his priors lends it more gravitas. Besides Randy, there's Joel McCrea, Warren Oates, Edgar Buchannan, L.Q. Jones, John Anderson and R.G. Armstrong.
We deal in lead, friend.
Watched Colt .45 yesterday, good classic western.
Favourite quote: Pour yourself some backbone and shut up!
I'd love that to have been a Duke quote as I'd have used it on my posts!
Dooley, it sounds like something John Wayne himself may have said.
