They mentioned on the Seven Sinners commentary that Tay Garnett was Clint Eastwood's favorite director on the Rawhide TV series.Seven Sinners and Her Man, both directed by Tay Garnett, boast great fight scenes. If I recall correctly from a screening of countless decades ago, the fight scene opened Her Man, whereas, as you state, the saloon fight closes Seven Sinners, another film I haven't seen in decades.

By the way, I haven't watched any of these movies in their entirety since I was a teenager back in the early 70's. I do have fond memories of "The Notorious Landlady" and that's because of Kim Novak. I liked "Good Neighbor Sam" too, but only vague memories of the other two movies.
I'll proceed with caution. I have all these in the Jack Lemmon DVD box-set and the transfers are good. I'll upgrade only if these Blu-rays are reported to be exceptional.
I swore I thought I talked about it in this thread beforehand. Anybody want to see a really good movie that was directed by Anthony Mann, check out "Men in War" starring Robert Ryan, Aldo Ray and Keith's old man Robert Keith. I believe that movie came out the same year as Nightfall. This movie also has a tremendous supporting cast.There was definitely something wrong with the audio recording of Eddie's intro and outro this week. On the TCM app, it was muffled to the point of not being understandable. On my DVR's recording of the TCM broadcast, the sound was coming out of the rear left speaker only in my set-up.
The movie itself played just fine. I had never seen it before, and I really enjoyed it though the ending was too pat for my taste. The transfer was pretty great, and I enjoyed all the performances. I had NO idea that character actor Robert Keith was Brian Keith's father!! How did that nugget of information escape me all these years?
