@Vicki Batman ~ #Movie Maniac: an old western, The Ox-Bow Incident



 
 
Handsome and I were watching/reading...something and this movie was mentioned because of the ethics involved. Handsome was intrigued and not long after, it aired on TCM. Was I glad I watched it.

The premise is three innocent men are wrongly hanged for the murder of a rancher.

Think about that--three innocent men. And a posse out for blood. Some of them have doubts and are over-ruled. All will live with their decision.

"The Ox-Bow Incident" is a 1943 American western film directed by William A. Wellman and starring Henry Fonda, Dana Andrews, Mary Beth Hughes, Anthony Quinn, William Eythe, Harry Morgan (Col. Potter from M*A*S*H*" and Jane Darwell (Ma Jobe from "Grapes of Wrath"). It was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Picture. In 1998, the film was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant."
