      Plot Summary
      A wanted murderer, Billy John, is captured by Ben Brigade, a bounty hunter,
      who intends to take him to Santa Cruz to be hanged.
      Brigade stops at a staging post, where he saves the manager's wife
      from an Indian attack, and enlists the help of two outlaws to continue
      his journey more safely.
      However, the Indian attacks persist, the outlaws plan to take Billy
      for themselves, tempted by the offer of amnesty for his captor,

      Trivia
      Film debut of James Coburn.

      Screenwriter Burt Kennedy's line spoken by Pernell Roberts, "There are some things a man just can't ride around," is an echo of a virtually identical line used by Scott in "The Tall T,' another entry in the Scott/Brown/Boetticher series.

      Anachronism
      Bra straps are seen through Mrs Lane's shirt when Brigade tries to negotiate with the Indian, and in a later scene at the abandoned corrals.

      Ride Lonesome is a 1959 Eastmancolor film;
      one of Budd Boetticher's "Ranown" westerns
      starring Randolph Scott and part of a series of films that began
      with Seven Men from Now.
      The film marked the screen debut of James Coburn

      One of the best westerns of the late 50s

      Tight, efficient western story (not a "saga") about a man who uses a prisoner to get his brother into the open for revenge. In the meantime he strings along a beautiful stranded woman and 2 outlaws who hope to kill Scott and turn his prisoner in for a pardon for themselves. The climax before the evil-looking "hanging tree" is very impressive, although the film could have built Van Cleef into a stronger villain (perhaps the realism of a villain who isn't all that bad was part of the plan). Excellent synergy of all the vital elements by the director in this, one of the best of the famed (and hard to find) Ranown films.

      Thanks Keith!
      I hope in having it on here others will discover it, as I have recently, as it's a great western which often goes unnoticed. It's a 'grown-up story and the film is lean and gritty. I'm sure if you dig into the background of it you'll find Sergio Leone was influenced by it.
      The DVD has an introduction by Martin Scorsese, he cites it as being one of his favourite Westerns and a benchmark he uses for film students.

      No problem Peter, it's good to get the feed back,
      and any request, is appreciative.

      Interestingly, I just viewed an episode of "Cheyenne" which featured both James Coburn and Lee Van Cleef as a pair of ultra-corrupt sheriffs. Needless to say, neither made it through alive.

      I can see a theme here which Western actors appeared in the most films without actually making it out alive!
