Plot: Gary Cooper stars as a mysterious frontier doctor, Joe Frail, in THE HANGING TREE. When a blind and ailing Swiss girl, Elizabeth Mahler, is placed under his care, Frail treats her, and then falls for her. However, it's not long before her miscreant partner, Frency Plante (Karl Malden), begins to stir up trouble for the couple. Director Delmer Daves delivers a hit with this film. It combines the psychodramatic elements of his war thriller DESTINATION TOKYO with the romance of NEVER LET ME GO. Featuring fine performances from all of its players, it marks the film debut of George C. Scott as Frailís mentor. A thinking manís western, THE HANGING TREE is a winning film.
