THE HANGING TREE ~ MARTY ROBBINS
Published on Aug 11, 2020
Martin David Robinson (September 26, 1925 -- December 8, 1982), known professionally as Marty Robbins, was an American singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist. One of the most popular and successful country and Western singers of all time for most of his nearly four-decade career, Robbins often topped the country music charts, and several of his songs also became pop hits.
The Hanging Tree was featured as the theme song in a 1959 movie by the same name directed by Delmer Daves. Karl Malden took over directing duties for several days when Daves fell ill. The film stars Gary Cooper, Maria Schell, George C. Scott and Malden and is set in the gold fields of Montana during the gold rush of the 1860s and 1870s.
