Randolph Scott’s western mystic is so powerful it was mocked in the hilarious Mel Brooks parody; Blazing Saddles; “You’d do it for Randolph Scott!” lamented the Sheriff when the townsfolk refused to help him.
Born in Virginia and raised in North Carolina, Randolph Scott was one of Hollywood’s top leading men in the 1940s and 50s. The handsome, craggy faced actor was one of the few movie stars who specialized in a certain type of film. Starting in 1947 Randolph Scott made only westerns, where he often played the tough as nails, morally strong hero who stood up to the thugs with a stoic, calmness. “Westerns are a type of picture which everybody can see and enjoy.”
