Not many Westerns can claim to be original. Seven Men from Now can. Its making, for the B-picture arm of John Wayne's Batjac company, was a modest enterprise. The screenwriter, Burt Kennedy, was just starting out; the director, Budd Boetticher, was a matador-turned-filmmaker with only one film of distinction (The Bullfighter and the Lady) in a journeyman career; the star, Randolph Scott, was regarded as "over the hill." Yet the three men's talents blended uncannily, producing not just a terrific Western but a cinema masterpiece--an ironical, beautifully spare bit of storytelling that became the ideal showcase for Scott's sandy reticence.

You don't want anybody synopsizing the story for you; there's little of it, really, yet how it's told makes it complex and compelling. We know, from a memorable first scene, that Scott is hunting down seven men who did something terrible. He will be thrown together with several other characters, including Lee Marvin as an affable but deadly rascal with whom he shares some history. Everybody has private reasons to be traveling through Apache country. Savor every syllable of the laconic dialogue, what people say and what they don't quite say--what they think they understand about one another's motives, except that that understanding keeps getting rearranged.

Seven Men from Now went missing after Wayne's death in 1979 threw the Batjac library into limbo. (Its success had inspired Scott, Boetticher, and Kennedy to collaborate on three other remarkable Westerns--The Tall T (1957), Ride Lonesome (1959), and Comanche Station (1960)--which, because they weren't made for Batjac, we've had little trouble seeing over the years.) The movie became legendary, a Holy Grail for film buffs. Now, with a beautiful restoration on DVD, it gets to be a movie again. A great one. --Richard T. Jameson

Format: DVD
Batjac Productions / Warner Brothers "SEVEN MEN FROM NOW" (1956) (78 mins/Warnercolor/Widescreen) (Dolby digitally remastered) --- Starring Randolph Scott, Gail Russell, Lee Marvin, Walter Reed, John Larch & Don 'Red' Barry --- Directed by Budd Boetticher and released in August 4, 1956, our story line and film, Ex-sheriff Ben Stride tracks the seven men who held up a Wells Fargo office and killed his wife. Stride is tormented by the fact that his own failure to keep his job was the cause of his wife's working in the express office and thus he is partly responsible for her death. Stride encounters a married couple heading west for California and helps them. Along the way they are joined by two others, Masters and Clete, who know that Stride is after the express-office robbers. They plan to let Stride lead them to the bandits, then make away with the loot themselves. But they aren't the only ones carrying a secret ... The first and one of the best of the Randolph Scott / Budd Boetticher / Burt Kennedy collaborations --- Often considered to be best of the best of Randolph Scott's westerns, his role was originally slated for John Wayne --- one of my all-time favourite western! - it grabs you by right from the start, then doesn't let go, not even for a moment, seventy-eight minutes later: you're exhausted!

Under Budd Boetticher (Director), Andrew V. McLaglen (Producer), Robert E. Morrison (Producer), Burt Kennedy (Screenwriter), Henry Vars (Screenwriter/Composer (Music Score) / Songwriter), William H.

I now own a Budd Boetticher western and now I'm obsessed. I've got all the Anthony Mann/Jimmy Stewart beauties and now I have to find ALL the Boetticher/Randolf Scott westerns. These may be termed "small films" or even "2nd features" but therein lies their power and grace. Both Mann and Boetticher excel at the small, tight story with just a few characters and a couple of locations. The quality is way above any of the big studio A-list productions of the same time period. Fantastic.
And... it's got one of my favorite types of commentaries... the film scholar who absolutely loves Budd Boetticher films. He never shuts up and it's all fantastic information... background info, historical (how the film got made), analysis on the semiotic level and commentary on the action on the screen. Just great.

I had low expectations. But I like Randolph Scott and this move was recommended. This is actually a really good movie. I can see why the director was so famous. I am not getting the rest of the movies he did with Scott.

Never been a real fan of Randolph Scott but this is a fun and enjoyable western. The performance of a young Lee Marvin makes it even more fun to watch.
