Raoul Walsh, for those who may be unaware, was one of the great American filmmakers, going back to 1912. For those who may care, yes, he worked on The Klansman.
His 1955 Fox production, The Tall Men, is one of the quintessential Clark Gable films.
Victor Young is responsible for the score. The film was shot by Leo Tover, and it’s a quality production, all around.
Which means, at least to me, that Twilight Time’s release of the film, is a cause for celebration.
Is it worth your time?
How does it look?
After viewing the screen grabs, far better than I surmised. I’m seeing no apparent x/y problems. Color appears extremely accurate for the early 5248 era, grain is appropriate, cut-in printer functions have been handled neatly, and the stereo tracks work beautifully.
A nice job from Fox, and a terrific Twilight Time release.
