in Hang 'Em High

By Rick29 on Aug 24, 2020 From Classic Film & TV Cafe

's first American film after achieving international stardom in Sergio Leone's Dollars Trilogy was predictably a Western. What is surprising is that Eastwood chose to ignore the qualities that made Leone's Western pictures unique. I wouldn't call Hang 'Em High (1968) conventional--it's... Read full article

Clint Eastwood Quotes:

[after rescuing Cooper from being lynched]
Marshal Dave Bliss: Some people call this hell, but you're still in Oklahoma Territory... Save your breath. I don't know who hung you or why, but if you're innocent, the judge will set you free. And if you're not, we'll have to take the trouble to hanging you again.


Blondie: The way I figure, there's really not too much future with a sawed-off runt like you.


Tuco: [trying to read a grave that is marked "Unknown"] Un-k... un-k... there's no name on it.
Blondie: [showing him a stone] There's no name here, either. See, that's what Bill Carson told me. It was the grave marked "Unknown", right beside Arch Stanton.
