ooh chickenhearted, sneaky.

could be a you-know-who-i- will-get-the-choir? but then again, maybe not, maybe a red herring.

tricky one. not clues just stabs in the dark.

Hmmm…I'm hanging up on this one.
It's something about that tree…
The tree is hanging me up.

I don't think you'll need the choir for this one, Bill...

Not the most famous western directed by John Sturges. But the 'search for hidden money/gold' theme usually makes a film more appealing to the audience.

I think you're right on this one, MI6; not a great Sturges film, but a pretty damn good one. The funny part is, I don't remember the tree in it. I'm basing my guess on the costume of the foreground character.

Taylor and Widmark classic.
Don't remember the tree there but the Spanish title was "Tesoro del ahorcado" so unless am very wrong think is that one , say so by law and Jack agrees.

This is the one where the climactic standoff is in that deserted mining town or something? It's been years since I've seen it but I remember it for being my introduction to the great Richard Widmark.

A film brought down a few notches by being cursed with a library cue score necessitated by the '58 musicians strike.

Interesting. Two years earlier, Widmark was the good guy in a western directed by Sturges; in this one he is one of the nastiest bad guys ever.

According to an 29 April 1958 Hollywood Reporter news item, THE LAW AND JAKE WADE marked the first time a major film studio used a "canned soundtrack" for background music. The item stated that composer Bronislau Kaper had begun a score for the film, but due to the musicians' strike, M-G-M purchased a full-length recording from the library of Capitol Records and used it for the film's music track.
