Movie Posters We Love: The Man They Could Not Hang (1939)


Weird! Horrifying! Fascinating!  At least, according to the poster, it is.

I wonder how many times they tried to hang this guy.  Maybe it’s because he has a very weak chin and the rope slides off.  Maybe he’s really slippery.  That would be weird. Or maybe they need to get a stronger rope.  Or maybe there was a court injunction, in which case this really is more of a courtroom drama, and the horror of it is in the injustice of it all!  Oh! The horror!
