Randolph Scott (1903-1987) made his film debut in 1928's Sharp Shooters, the first of the many Westerns he would make over the course of his movie career. By the mid-1930s he was a romantic lead and co-star, and from 1950-1953 Scott was one of the top ten box office attractions. The virile, weathered Scott is best known for his cowboy roles; in the 1940s and 1950s he starred in 39 big-budget Westerns, including Virginia City (1940). His last film, Ride the High Country (1962), was one of his best. Beginning just before America entered World War II, Scott left the Western sagebrush behind to star in a series of heroic wartime roles, including Paris Calling, To the Shores of Tripoli, Bombardier, China Sky, and, of course, Gung Ho! Left edge torn from previous binding. Lightly soiled. Otherwise, fine condition.
