Decision at Sundown is a 1957 American Western film directed by Budd Boetticher and starring Randolph Scott. It is one of seven Boetticher/Scott western collaborations, including Seven Men from Now, The Tall T, Buchanan Rides Alone, Westbound, Ride Lonesome and Comanche Station.

Boetticher said this film and Westbound were the only mediocre films he made as part of the Ranown cycle.[1]


Bart Allison (Randolph Scott) rides into a sleepy town named Sundown with the intention of killing local boss Tate Kimbrough (John Carroll) by sundown.

Some years earlier, Kimbrough had an affair with Allison's wife, who later committed suicide. Tensions build as sundown approaches, not just between Allison and Kimbrough, but among the townspeople as well.


DVD release

In 2008 a DVD box set of five Budd Boetticher films starring Randolph Scott was released. Along with Decision at Sundown the set includes Buchanan Rides Alone, Comanche Station, Ride Lonesome, and The Tall T.[2]
