Based on the Humphrey Bogart star making classic High Sierra, I Died a Thousand Times brings vivid Warnercolor richness and the enveloping expanse of CinemaScope to the gritty saga of old-timer Roy "Mad Dog" Earle (Jack Palance), just released from prison and leading nervous small-timers (Lee Marvin and Earl Holliman) on a resort heist fated not to go like clockwork. Soft-hearted Earle is so drawn to a crippled girl (Lori Nelson) that he pays for curative operation. But when things go wrong, it's a brassy dime-a-dance girl (Shelley Winters) who stands beside him. Veterans Lon Chaney and Mae Clarke and newcomers Dennis Hopper and Richard Davalos are featured in the top-flight cast. With a taut script by High Sierra novelist W.R. Burnett and a heart-pounding manhunt finale, I Died a Thousand Times is a rousing, memorable thriller.
An intensely satisfying drama of rugged primitive justice, "The Man from Laramie" marked the final, and finest, collaboration of one of the most important teams in Western films: director Anthony Mann and star Jimmy Stewart. Together this perfectly-matched pair provided audiences with eight classic pictures, including "Winchester '73" and "Strategic Air Command." Under Mann's superb direction, Stewart departs from his well-loved "ordinary hero" role and gives a riveting performance as a resolute vigilante obsessed with finding the man responsible for his brother's death. Among the suspects are an arrogant cattle baron (Donald Crisp), his sadistic son (Alex Nicol) and his ranch foreman (Arthur Kennedy, in the best performance of his career). One explosive confrontation, in which Stewart is dragged by a wild horse and shot in the hand at close range, is one of movie history's most memorable sequences. Among the first Westerns filmed in CinemaScope, "The Man from Laramie" uses the widescreen technology to emphasize the scope and power of this harrowing action-drama, making it a perfect example of the Western as America's epic art form.
