344. Ride Lonesome

Ride Lonesome
Directed by Budd Boetticher

This is a western that left absolutely no impression on my mind.  Maybe it is because I have seen dozens and dozens of westerns by now because of the list that it takes something really special to move me.  On with the review but honestly, I don't have too much to say about this.

A bounty hunter is escorting a man into town to be hanged but is pursued by the man's brother.  Oh yeah and there is a dame.

It sounds like I hated this film, but really I didn't.  It was a fun, short ride even with the slightly wooden actors.  The cinematography was quite beautiful; you could tell that Budd was heavily influenced by John Ford.

Still, why it is considered a must see film is a mystery to me. Well, there are worst ways to spend an hour and twelve minutes.

RATING: **---

Interesting Facts:

First film of James Coburn.


  1. I literally saw this last week and had to read your synopsis again because I couldn't remember it. I don't know why this was on the list.

  2. And then I think of all the movies that did not make the list...
    why did we need another western?

    1. I have no idea but according to the List we need ALL the westerns.
