Coop's Last Ride: THE HANGING TREE (1959)

I'm starting a new series of articles over at Criminal Element called The Cowboy Rides Away. I'll look at the final Western of each of the great stars of the genre. First up, my favorite cowboy of them all, the great Gary Cooper.

I've written about Coop before, but this is the first time I've written about his final oater, the dark and interesting THE HANGING TREE, directed by (the quite underrated) Delmer Daves. 

Give it a read and let me know what you think.
