Budd Boetticher doc on TCM

Watch it again when it's rerun if you're a fan; a cut above their usual -- 90 minutes, and written/produced by Dave Kehr. I've seen 4 or 5 of the Randolph Scott films and it made me want to see them again. Eventually.

And they got Eastwood and Tarantino to sit in the pundit screening room.

I'm not sure if TCM is going to run it again, although I believe a slightly shorter version of the same doc is included on the new R1 DVD of Seven Men From Now. It was decent - the interviews with Boetticher were the best. But the first time they cut from the 2000 interview (old man), right back to one from 1971 (middle-aged man) really messed with may head - watching time move backwards like that, what time does to us all - ugh.

It also seemed pretty good at describing that era in Hollywood, the working life reality of it.

Highly recommend this set if you can find at a dece price:

Shame that a different rights holder for 7 Men From Now precludes its inclusion in these kind of collections - it might even be the best of them, tho I've yet to see Buchanan Rides Alone. Got to save at least one Budd/Randolph western for a rainy day.

Indicator also included a pre-Budd, Oscar Boetticher Jr noir from 1945, Escape in the Fog, in their first Columbia Noir box set. Boetticher REALLY disavowed all his early films, but overall this is a typically excellent box from Indicator, and still in print:
