Hangman's Knot/Desperado: Special Edition (2 Pack)

Hangman's Knot

Hangman's Knot is an exciting, suspense-filled Western starring Randolph Scott and an excellent supporting cast, including Donna Reed (Best Supporting Actress winner From here to Eternity, 1953) and Lee Marvin (Best Actor Oscar winner Cat Ballou, 1965).

At the end of the Civil War, a small band of Confederate soldiers ambush a Union gold shipment. To their horror, they learn from a dying soldier that the war between the North and the South has been over for a month. Now facing certain criminal prosecution for acts committed while they thought the war was on, the troop seeks refuge in a stagecoach waystation. A feisty ex-Union army nurse (Reed) and three others are held captive while the men plot their next move. The troops' leader (Scott) wants to return the gold in exchange for amnesty, but the blood-thirsty bounty hunters are closing in, and have every intention of taking the loot and hanging the soldiers.

This handsome Technicolor production proved to be Scott's biggest commercial and critical success. The top-notch cast includes Jeanette Nolan (The Big Heat, Orson Welles' Macbeth), Richard Denning (An Affair to Remember) and Claude Jarman, Jr. (The Yearling).

Desperado: Special Edition

Antonio Banderas, Joaquim De Almeida, Salma Hayek, Steve Buscemi, Cheech Marin and Quentin Tarantino star in this stylish shoot-'em-up described as a south-of-the-border Pulp Fiction.

Director Robert Rodriguez follows up his legendary debut film, El Mariachi, with this sexy sequel about a mysterious guitar player (Banderas) search for vengeance against the men who murdered his girlfriend.
