Sequel of The Over the Hill Gang

The Over the Hill GangEdgar Buchanan was the key members of the gang who are reunited with an aim to flush out the corrupt political leaders or mayors from their town Texas. The Over the Hill Gang (1969) was a popular television film and touched the height of popularity that resulted in a sequel immediately after a year. Beating the appeal and impression of this movie was very hard for other old movies of the particular era. It was fascinating to see the veteran characters playing and confronting with situations with cleverness rather than the guns.

Basically, the story begins when O’Brien’s son-in-law made a decision to compete for the mayor in the next election. It was something unbearable for the mayor and he sends his armed force to halt his campaign. When the ex-ranger came to know about the problems his daughter and son in law were facing, he immediately sends a call to three of his former colleagues naming Edgar Buchanan, Walter Brennan, and Chill Wills for help.

In short, it was an outstanding movie and Edgar Buchanan was the gem of Hollywood and was nominated for several awards for his exceptional performances in different movies.
