Clint is out for revenge in HANG ‘EM HIGH

On December 11th, Shout Factory will be releasing a 50th Anniversary Edition of the classic western HANG ‘EM HIGH. This was Clint Eastwood’s first feature after he returned from Italy where he made The Dollars Trilogy with Sergio Leone. It also marked the beginning of his career as a major Hollywood star.

Synopsis: They riddled him with bullets. They strung him up. They left him to die. But they made two fatal mistakes: they hanged the wrong man … and they didn’t finish the job. Oklahoma, 1873: Jed Cooper (Clint Eastwood), mistaken for a rustler and killer, is lynched on the spot by crooked lawman Captain Wilson (Ed Begley) and a rampaging band of vigilantes. But as Wilson and his gang flee the scene, there’s one very important detail they’ve overlooked — Cooper is still alive! Saved in the nick of time by a sheriff, Cooper takes on the job of deputy marshal in order to bring hard-handed justice to the Oklahoma territory … and to the nine men who “done him wrong.” Co-starring Inger Stevens and Pat Hingle, Hang ‘Em High is a savage and action-packed western adventure, presented to you in this celebratory 50th Anniversary Edition.
