Interesting documentary on man known mostly for B-westerns...
25 June 2009 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

The man who made many a B-western with actors like RANDOLPH SCOTT is self-taught director BUDD BOETTICHER, who has a lot of interesting things to say about what drove him to become a director who began with low-budget crime stories and eventually stayed more with the western mode.

Among those who talk about him, CLINT EASTWOOD makes some of the best observations. And, of course, the fact that he "put flesh and blood on the screen," is what made QUENTIN Tarantino a disciple of Boetticher.

The Randolph Scott cycle includes some good clips from 7 MEN FROM NOW, THE TALL T, DECISION AT SUNDOWN, RIDE LONESOME and COMMANCHE STATION.

Interesting early facts: He was assistant director on THE MORE THE MERRIER with Jean Arthur and Joel McCrea; had a run-in with Harry Cohn who later hired him out of respect for his courage to stand up to him; had to prove to Darryl Zanuck that he knew something about bullfighting so he could get some work on BLOOD AND SAND and also choreographed the exotic dance scene between Rita Hayworth and Anthony Quinn.

Cantankerous and unpredictable, his films are given due respect by a number of people who recognize their worth as westerns that inspired many other films that followed. Many of them have a cult following today.
