The English Teacher's Top Ten: The Films of Randolph Scott

Our maverick English Teacher and movie buff goes the "Top Ten "route with movie makers, movie stars, and movie genres. Up next - Randolph Scott. Often dismissed as the "poor man's John Wayne ", Scott was a dependable, if not remarkable , fixture in Hollywood, especially as a star of minor Westerns and a second lead. Then in the 1950s he teamed up with director Budd Boetticher for a series of lean, taut Westerns that revealed him to be much more adept at playing complex characters than anyone had thought. When Boetticher Left Hollywood in 1961 to make a documentary in Mexico, Scott gave his final, greatest performance in Sam Peckinpah 's iconic "Ride the High Country ". Scott felt he couldn't top that movie or performance, so he retired from the movies and never looked back.
