Product Description



Not many Westerns can claim to be original. Seven Men from Now can. Its making, for the B-picture arm of John Wayne's Batjac company, was a modest enterprise. The screenwriter, Burt Kennedy, was just starting out; the director, Budd Boetticher, was a matador-turned-filmmaker with only one film of distinction (The Bullfighter and the Lady) in a journeyman career; the star, Randolph Scott, was regarded as "over the hill." Yet the three men's talents blended uncannily, producing not just a terrific Western but a cinema masterpiece--an ironical, beautifully spare bit of storytelling that became the ideal showcase for Scott's sandy reticence.

You don't want anybody synopsizing the story for you; there's little of it, really, yet how it's told makes it complex and compelling. We know, from a memorable first scene, that Scott is hunting down seven men who did something terrible. He will be thrown together with several other characters, including Lee Marvin as an affable but deadly rascal with whom he shares some history. Everybody has private reasons to be traveling through Apache country. Savor every syllable of the laconic dialogue, what people say and what they don't quite say--what they think they understand about one another's motives, except that that understanding keeps getting rearranged.

Seven Men from Now went missing after Wayne's death in 1979 threw the Batjac library into limbo. (Its success had inspired Scott, Boetticher, and Kennedy to collaborate on three other remarkable Westerns--The Tall T (1957), Ride Lonesome (1959), and Comanche Station (1960)--which, because they weren't made for Batjac, we've had little trouble seeing over the years.) The movie became legendary, a Holy Grail for film buffs. Now, with a beautiful restoration on DVD, it gets to be a movie again. A great one. --Richard T. Jameson

By B. Cathey on August 14, 2005
SEVEN MEN FROM NOW is a remarkable Randolph Scott Western, and this announced release is equally remarkable---for a number of reasons. Randy Scott, by the mid-1950s, had pretty much---at least so the critics thought---reached the end of what was a respectable career in acting (mostly in action dramas and largely, since 1946, in "super B" Westerns). This Batjac production, directed superbly by Budd Boetticher (Andrew McLaglen was the producer), signaled an incredible "Indian summer" for Scott, the high point in his career. Over the next 5 or 6 years, from 1956 until his final, Sam Peckinpah-directed classic RIDE THE HIGH COUNTRY (co-starring with Joel McCrea), Scott would star in a series of absolutely first-rate little Westerns that would prove the critics wrong, and firmly establish Randolph Scott as one of the finest Western actors of all time.

SEVEN MEN FROM NOW has never been released on commercial video; a few "private" releases have circulated, but never in really good picture quality and never widely available. This announced release, then, is of great importance well beyond the Western genre: it will offer not just Western movie fans and Scott fans a good opportunity to actually "see" the movie as it was released, but it will enable all moviegoers a chance to see, in the comfort of their own homes, a real classic in moviemaking for the first time in almost forty years.

Within this past year Scott's earlier vehicle, ALBUQUERQUE, was released on DVD. It was thought by many, including some film historians, that that film had been lost. Instead, it turned up on a fine DVD issue, in its original (and good-looking) Cinecolor release. Now SEVEN MEN FROM NOW will be appearing, and there is additional reason for joy.

There should be no hesitation by anyone: SEVEN MEN FROM NOW is a classic, and should be in everyone's collection.

I've read about this film for years but had never seen it. Because it was tied up in the John Wayne estate and BATJAC holdings, it hadn't made it to video (at least DVD) until now. Wayne was off doing oher things so it was never planned that he star in it, and reprotedly he suggested Scott for the part, but it's also related that once he saw the finished product, he wished he had done it.
Well it's here and the reputation is born out. A well drawn story, with interesting characters, great scenery, good cast and generally a first class film all around. Scott is the ramrod straight hero who is out to right a wrong and Lee Marvin is the intersting, semi likeable, principal villan. Gail Russel is the female lead who along with her screen husband are befriended by Scott on the trail. The spare script and good though not extravegant production values add to the tone and feel of the film. The special features indicate it's been restored, and I don't know from that, but the picture and colors are first rate. It's presented in widescreen format and I don't think it was orginally shot that way, but it comes across great in that aspect. Hard to imagine it looking any better on the big screen. This is the first of the Scott-Boetticher collaborations and it's time to bring The Tall T, Ride Lonesome and Comanche Station to DVD. These are all classic westerns and worth the trouble to bring them to the genre starved market today. Interstingly, the villians in these particular films are actually more fully drawn than the hero who's a bit on the stoic side. Richard Boone had that role in The Tall T, Pernell Roberts in Ride Lonesome, and Claude Akins in Comanche Station. A formula of a type, I'm sure, but well done as you build a little sympathy, or at least tolerance, for the bad guy.
Highly recommend!

I recently saw this movie on the AMC channel. Even though I've been a fan of Westerns for nearly 40 years, I believe this was the first time I've seen it.

Until around 1995, I was never a big fan of Randolph Scott. I think that's because I was too busy watching Clint Eastwood, John Wayne, Kirk Douglas and Jimmy Stewart. But, after watching "Ride The High Country" back in the mid 90's, I realized how much screen presence and talent Randolph Scott possessed. Watch the subtle expressions on his face as he's conversing with Gail Russell. The twitch of an eyebrow says a lot.

In the opening scene, it's obviouus that there is a shootout. But, you don't know who "won" until you see that person riding a horse in the next scene. So for a few moments, you're kept in suspense. I've pointed this out to exemplify the skill of the director.

"7 Men from Now" is a terrific Western. It has been restored perfectly. Watching it on DVD widesceen is thrilling. The colors are magnificent. The camera angles, scene locations, storyline and acting are superb. On a more grisley note: when some of the men are "shot", watch how their bodies and arms twist and contort in pain as they fall. There's something about the way they react after being shot. And the silent moments in the saloon, when the men don't know each other and they don't know how to react to each other. It's the little things like that that make the movie all the more realistic.

Lee Marvin is excellent as always. The scene between he and Randolph Scott toward the end of the movie is classic (more twisting and contorting). This Western is now in my "Top 10". If you love Westerns like I do, you need to get this DVD. Watch this movie and then watch it again. It's very, very good in all aspects of movie-making. It reminds me of why I love Westerns.
