Hang ‘Em High

Hang ‘Em High was a 1968 Western film starring Clint Eastwood as Jed Cooper, an innocent man who survives a lynching; Inger Stevens as a widow who helps him; Ed Begley as the leader of the gang that lynched Cooper; and Pat Hingle as the judge who hires him as a U.S. Marshal.

The theme was composed by Dominic Frontiere. Though it was first covered by Hugo Montenegro– whose orchestra recorded a full album of music from the film — the tune became a bigger hit in the R&B instrumental version by Booker T. & the M.G.’s that charted #9 in 1968.

My instrumental arrangement is based on the original movie theme.
