Decision at Sundown (Boetticher, 1957): Prince Charles Cinema, 12.15pm

Ths film, part of the Ranown Series: Westerns of Budd Boetticher season at the Prince Charles, also screens on August 4th. Full details here.

Chicago Reader review:
This 1957 feature, the third of Budd Boetticher’s remarkable Randolph Scott westerns, finds Scott as a man obsessed with revenging the suicide of his wife on her former lover. Boetticher’s westerns seem to exist apart from history; they are highly stylized, almost abstract moral studies, compressed and analytical. Unique in the genre, they are essential viewing.

Here (and above) is the trailer.
