Hang ‘Em High (1968) – A Perspective Review


In 1968, an already 38-year-old Clint Eastwood was made a producer of a movie that was going to be the “bridge” back to the states when it came to the Spaghetti Westerns and Hollywood’s at-all interest in the modern Western Feature film.

A number of years later, a young 8 year old Canadian kid dreamt of becoming a lawman. Later, he did, and at the center of that grand vision was the aforementioned bridge feature film. It’s title is Hang ‘Em High – 1968, directed by Ted Post, starring Clint Eastwood and a robust cast of Hollywood talent that is likely almost as long as this podcast.

The sun is high on the horizon and the time to Hang ‘Em High, with the help of a podcast host and four life-long lawmen hailing from a variety of parts of North America. This is the WhatCopsWatch Perspective Review of 1968’s Hang ‘Em High.
