Seven Men from Now
Directed by Budd Boetticher • 1956 • United States
Starring Randolph Scott, Gail Russell, Lee Marvin
The hunt is on for seven murderous rogues who robbed a Wells Fargo freight station of $20,000, killing a clerk in the process. Stoic, no-nonsense ex-lawmen Ben Stride (Randolph Scott, in the first of his celebrated collaborations with director Budd Boetticher) is the man determined to track down those seven men, for it was his beloved wife who was murdered during the heist. During his quest, Stride encounters a struggling, California-bound pioneer couple (Walter Reed and Gail Russell) as well as an old nemesis, Masters (Lee Marvin), with whom Stride shares an uneasy alliance. All will find themselves swept into the drama of Stride’s search for frontier justice.
