One of seven austere westerns starring Randolph Scott and directed by one-time Ohio State football player Budd Boetticher, Ride Lonesome is perhaps the bleakest of the bunch. Here Scott plays bounty hunter Ben Brigade, who’s taking in criminal James Best to face trial for murder. Little does Best know that he’s only bait for Brigade’s brother Frank (Lee Van Cleef), who’s greatly wronged the bounty hunter in the past. Sony Pictures’ Grover Crisp presents footage pre- and post-restoration before the screening. (73 mins., 4K DCP)
