Ride Lonesome ★★½ 1959

The heroic Scott is a bounty hunter looking for a killer (Best). It's not just the money, Scott hopes Best will lead him to the man who murdered Scott's wife. Along the trail he meets a pretty widow and two outlaws who hope if they capture Best, they'll get a pardon. A well-done example of a “B” western with good performances; Coburn's film debut. 73m/C VHS . Randolph Scott, James Best, Karen Steele, Pernell Roberts, Lee Van Cleef, James Coburn; D: Budd Boetticher; W: Burt Kennedy.
