          Great performances by Gary Cooper, Maria Schell, and Karl Mauldin. Filmed in breath taking locations. One of Cooper's best films.

              I made 10 WBA purchases last month and if I had to
              pick the most endearing it would be this one. Gary
              Cooper can do no wrong as a drifting Doctor with a
              mysterious past who residing in a shante gold mine
              town picks up more than he bargined for in the way
              of opening his life to petty thief (Gazzara) and a
              displaced blinded woman (The always lovely Schell)
              Great film, Fantastic Cinematography and memorable
              cast that includes George C scott and Karl Malden.

                  This DVD had no digital subtitling OR analog closed captioning. Pretty disappointing.

                    Terrific Western Drama with great performances by the entire cast, especially Gary Cooper giving one of his best. Not your typical Cooper All-American Hero-type but a darker, more brooding character hiding a mysterious past. Very engaging storyline. Wonderful Cinematography.

                    The DVD picture quality itself is very uneven. Some scenes look quite good and then some scenes seem slightly washed-out and faded. White specks and print damage are visible throughout but not distractingly so. This is one classic Western movie in need of not only a re-master but a complete restoration. I am very glad though Warner Bros. has released it on DVD and am proud to finally have it in my movie collection.

                      I saw this at the theater when I was about nine years old (pre-rating). Didn't quite understand some of dark themes and sexual tension at the time, but knew that there was a lot more going on than my adolescent mind could grasp. The film haunted me for years, and I VCRed and DVDed it to view it over and over. Truly, an adult Western classic, years ahead of it's time. Thank you, WB.

                      "The Hanging Tree" finally gets a remastered widescreen release, thanks to the Warner Archive. The movie itself is a class act, the sort of western Hollywood will never produce again because corporate movie makers now appeal to the lowest common denominator and because there is no one around the equal of Gary Cooper. "The Hanging Tree" is a movie that should be made for Blu-ray release with all the extras you used to get on DVDs but usually don't get anymore for DVDs of old movies, stuff like secondary language tracks, commentary tracks, subtitles and "making of" shorts.
