A western for the ages. Perhaps the best of it's kind., 22 August 2004
Author: rsda from Palm Springs

Seven Men from Now is a must-see for all fans of the western. Beautifully directed and acted, this film is just under 80 minutes and yet manages to do more in that time than the over-long mega-films of today.

Randolph Scott who replaced John Wayne (due to Wayne's schedule) is excellent as the silent man of the West who is out to avenge his wife's murder. Gail Russell in her comeback role is marvelous and touching. Produced by John Wayne, he(Wayne) insisted that Gail be given the leading lady role even after he himself was forced to desert the leading role. He was determined to help the troubled Miss Russell restart her career. They had worked so beautifully together in two previous films, ANGEL AND THE BADMAN and WAKE OF THE RED WITCH. U.C.L.A archives has preserved this film in pristine condition and gorgeous Technicolor. We must make an effort to do a write in campaign to Warner Brothers to release it on D.V.D. so it is not once again lost to the world.
