The Ox-Bow Incident has come up in threads in the past when we've discussed all time favorite westerns and even when we had the Hang 'Em High film discussion the comparison was mentioned. That discussion can be found here.

Clint Eastwood on many occassions has stated that The Ox-Bow Incident is one of his favorite films.

I hope you don't mind icnmedia but we Mods changed the title of the thread to make it more descriptive. 8)

I still like the comparison to clint and Fonda. Though I know he's said he's always 'fonda' James cagney. (Haha).

Back to Hang em high, I wonder if the comparison was conscience (Sp!), if so how much?

I know it set off quite a few films with the same theme.
