Western star Randolph Scott straps on his guns for one of his very best films, now available on DVD for the first time. After losing his horse in a bull-riding contest, rancher Pat Brennan (Randolph Scott) hitches a lift home on the stagecoach out of the frontier town of Contention. At a remote way station, the stage is ambushed by a ruthless bandit gang led by Usher (Richard Boone). They don't intend leaving any witnesses - until they discover that one of the passengers is copper heiress Doretta Mims (Maureen O'Sullivan). Now they want $50,000 in ransom from her father - or everybody dies. As tension mounts almost to breaking point, Brennan must discover a way to outwit - and outgun - the outlaw gang before they murder all of their hostages… Adapted from a story by Elmore Leonard, The Tall T is widely acknowledged to be one of the very best films in a series of highly rated Westerns starring Randolph Scott and directed by Budd Boetticher. In 2000, The American Library of Congress selected the film for special preservation in the U.S. National Film Registry for being 'culturally, historically or aesthetically significant.'
