Decision At Sundown
sundown is the name of the city that randolph scott’s nemesis has taken over (in classic western style the nemesis owns the law and the citizens are afraid of him). scott comes into town with his sidekick (who provides some comic relief) in order to avenge the death of his wife. things get more complicated as the the film unfolds and it gets more seedy than you might expect. it’s a good film to show on election night because of some of the themes of bullies running the town and the citizenry having to step up and run the bully out themselves. tcm aired several films with “decision” in the title on 11/4 and this was the only one i saw.
