COMANCHE STATION - BD
(Budd Boetticher, 1960)
Release date: 27 July 2020
Standard Edition Blu-ray
The final film in the revered, influential series of collaborations between director Budd Boetticher and star Randolph Scott, 1960’s Comanche Station is their most poetic, accomplished and pessimistic work.
Here, Scott saves a woman kidnapped by Comanches, and whom he believes is his long-missing wife. When a band of other mercenaries turn up on their trail, he must fight to get both of them home alive.
This brooding and almost mythical western is the culmination of a prolific collaboration that would influence filmmakers from the French New Wave to Quentin Tarantino.
