Studio: Twilight Time

Directed by Edward Dmytryk (The Young Lions), 1959’s Warlock is a remarkable adult Western.

The film stars Henry Fonda (Young Mr. Lincoln) as a murderous gunslinger hired to rid a frontier town of a gang of troublemakers. Meanwhile, a onetime black hat, played by Richard Widmark (Hell and High Water), takes on the more formal job of sheriff, and finds himself dealing with both the cowboy gang and the gunslinger.

Anthony Quinn (The River’s Edge) and Dorothy Malone (Private Hell 36) co-star, backed by a villainous crew of superlative character actors. Shot by the great Joe MacDonald (My Darling Clementine), the movie features a solid score from Leigh Harline (Black Widow).

Special features include an isolated music track, a Fox Movietone newsreel and an original theatrical trailer.
