Bracketing the 1950s a group of four crime films recently released by the Warner Archive Collection suggest just how radical those shifts can be. A pair of films from 1949, Richard O.

    In 1955, he helmed another bullfighting drama, The Magnificent Matador, at 20th Century-Fox, which began his frequent collaboration with cinematographer Lucien Ballard, followed by a trim film noir, The Killer Is Loose, for United Artists.
    More Details Hide Details He also directed the first three episodes of the TV series Maverick. Boetticher finally achieved his major breakthrough when he teamed up with actor Randolph Scott, producer Harry Joe Brown and screenwriter Burt Kennedy to produce the seven films (last in 1960) that came to be known as the Ranown Cycle. Boetticher spent most of the 1960s south of the border pursuing his obsession, the documentary of his friend, the bullfighter Carlos Arruza, turning down profitable Hollywood offers and suffering humiliation and despair to stay with the project, including sickness, bankruptcy and confinement in both jail and asylum (all of which is detailed in his autobiography When in Disgrace). It was finally released in the USA as "Arruza" in 1971. In 1960, the director made a departure from Western films for The Rise and Fall of Legs Diamond, the story of a high-rolling gambler, starring Ray Danton, loosely based on the lives of Jack Diamond and Arnold Rothstein. The rest of Boetticher's output since 1960 consists of the rarely seen A Time for Dying (a collaboration with Audie Murphy released in 1971), the story for Don Siegel's Two Mules for Sister Sara (1970), the documentary My Kingdom For (1985) and his appearance as a judge in Robert Towne's Tequila Sunrise (1988), and he was still actively attempting to get his screenplay "A Horse for Mr. Barnum" made, before his death in 2001.
