8. The Tall T (1957)
Arguably the best of Budd Boetticher’s B-westerns, The Tall T has the tick-tock, race-against-time pacing of a first-rate thriller. Loaded with harrowing performances and peppered with Leonard’s down-and-dirty macho dialogue, the film pits Randolph Scott against baddie Richard Boone — who’s taken Maureen O’Sullivan hostage and holds her for ransom. Leonard’s genius is in showing us just how alike his hero and villain are despite the color of their hats. —Chris Nashawaty
