Synopsis:
They riddled him with bullets. They strung him up. They left him to die. But they made two fatal mistakes: they hanged the wrong man...and they didn't finish the job. Oklahoma, 1873. Jed Cooper (Clint Eastwood), mistaken for a rustler and killer, is lynched on the spot by crooked lawman Captain Wilson (Ed Begley) and a rampaging band of vigilantes. But as Wilson and his gang flee the scene, there's one very important detail they've overlooked: Cooper is still alive! Out for justice - and vengeance - Cooper takes on the job of deputy marshal...and, one by one, tracks down the nine men who "done him wrong".

Not in the same league as Clint's spaghetti westerns. Not bad, just average. - Hang 'Em High review by RP

Spoiler Alert
05/05/2013

Clint Eastwood plays Clint Eastwood in his first US western after starring in Sergio Leone's spaghetti western 'Man With No Name' trilogy.

Clint is Jed Cooper (see - he does have a name after all) who is first wrongly accused of cattle rustling, lynched and left for dead, rescued by a conveniently passing marshal who takes him to the local 'hanging judge' who clears him, signs him up as a marshal, and sends him out to bring back his attackers alive. There are some good scenes - the mass hanging is well handled - and some wooden acting (the love interest is pretty dire).

While this film frankly isn't in the same league as the spaghetti westerns, it's not bad - but it is laboured in parts. That's probably down to the somewhat moralising tone as Clint is forbidden to take revenge but to let the law take its course. My course is to give it 3/5 stars. It's pretty average stuff.
