    Culver City, CA (June 27, 2005) - Randolph Scott (Ride the High Country,
    The Desperadoes)
    stars in the action-packed classic western, The Stranger Wore a Gun
    available for the first time on
    DVD September 6 from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. Directed by Academy
    Award® nominee
    André De Toth (The Gunfighter, 1953's House of Wax), who directed seven of
    star Randolph Scott's
    westerns, The Stranger Wore a Gun also features George Macready (Gilda) and
    Oscar® winners
    Lee Marvin (Cat Ballou, The Dirty Dozen), Ernest Borgnine (Marty, The Wild
    Bunch) and Claire Trevor
    (Key Largo, Stagecoach). The DVD will sell for $14.94 SLP.

    One of the first 3-D films ever produced, The Stranger Wore a Gun was
    released in 1953, just after
    the craze for stereoscopic movies had begun. Scott stars as Lt. Jeff
    Travis, a former Civil War spy
    who heads west to start a new life. In Arizona, Travis meets up with an
    old friend (Macready) who
    he discovers is planning a gold robbery. Unfortunately, the intended
    vicitim, the owner of a freight
    line, coincidentally turns out to be the father of Travis' love interest

    Filmed at the height of his popularity, The Stranger Wore a Gun showcases
    Randolph Scott at
    his best in the type of film that made him famous. Few stars have been so
    closely identified with
    one genre as Randolph Scott was with the western. Tall and ruggedly
    handsome, Scott typified
    the Hollywood cowboy. He successfully modified the genre's clichés to fit
    his own personal style,
    especially in the modestly budgeted, gritty Westerns he co-produced and
    starred in during the
    1950s. During his 30-year career, Scott made 104 films, more than 60 of
    them westerns.
