Film: Ride The High Country

Two former lawmen (Randolph Scott's ultimate sunset ride and the penultimate for Joel McCrea) are escorting a shipment of gold through the Sierra Nevada; betrayal is just around the corner.

A Western created when the Hollywood studio system was in decline. Box-office glory didn't happen for this film on its initial 1962 appearance, but modern cinephiles recognize it as an early triumph in the career of Sam Peckinpah, with some even ranking it higher than The Wild Bunch.
