The Hanged Man 1974
16 May 2014 | by last_unicorn52See all my reviews

I've been watching movies for many many years and seen some of the best , along w/ some of the worse. The Hanged Man is not the best But its not bad either. Steve Forrest's acting adds to the plot w/ a dimension of calm cold bloodiness that was prevalent back then. Cameron Mitchell seemed to be a little hammy but from reading history a lot of the big cattle ranchers/mine owners acted that way they thought they were above the Law. Overall it was a little above ave. There's a few other well known actors in it Will Geer Rafael Campos. It does encourage you to see other movies especially w/ those guys. If I may in a personnel note, its a shame us movie goers see actors faces that we have seen before but we don't know there names. A lot of them deserved more..
