Filmed by legendary western director Budd Boetticher and based on a story by Elmore Leonard, THE TALL T is considered by many to be a classic of the Western genre. Pat Brennan (Randolph Scott, Ride the High Country) is a former ranch hand trying to make it on his own. After losing his horse in a bet, he finds himself on a stagecoach with Willard (John Hubbard, The Cimarron Kid) and Doretta Mims (Maureen O’Sullivan, The Thin Man). When a pack of outlaws takes over the stagecoach and finds out that Doretta is the heir to a copper fortune, a hostage situation develops, and it’s up to Brennan to save the day. Newly remastered.
