1953 - WINGS OF THE HAWK, not bad Budd Boetticher western

Probably not a western that the director Budd Boetticher will be remembered for.  Nevertheless this is a pretty decent western.  The action is well staged by the director and while the cast may not have been "A" quality talent but they all acquainted themselves very well.

Universal knocked out a lot of these cheap back lot westerns.  Wings of the Hawk is one of the better ones that I have seen.  Probably not a personal project for Boetticher, but he did a very good job with it.

80 minutes.
