    The Hanging Tree
    Gary Cooper plays a frontier doctor with a checkered past who works in a rowdy Montana mining camp. Cooper falls in love with Maria Schell, a young Swiss girl whom he has treated for shock after she was the victim of a holdup. He finances Schell's grubstake, which makes her rich. When Schell's unscrupulous partner Karl Malden tries to have his way with the girl, Cooper kills Malden. Sentenced to an immediate hanging, Cooper is saved when Schell offers to give the town her valuable mine. A surprise hit in 1959, The Hanging Tree was based on an award-winning novel by Dorothy M. Johnson. The film not only yielded a hit theme song by Mack David and Jerry Livingston, but also served as the film debut of George C. Scott, who plays Cooper's doctor predecessor. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

      It came to our attention that this great western classic was available on-line via Best Buy, which has become our personal choice for collectible films. Quality and sound are very good for an older film. It was refreshing to see some of our favorite actors (no longer with us) and to enjoy acting without vulgarity, as witnessed in many present venues. Thanks for being there for us who enjoy good, clean entertainment.
