Noose For A Gunman, Britton reluctantly returns to his home town where he had killed two men. The citizens are none too enthused about his return, but Marshal Tom Evans becomes more friendly when Cases explains that he has returned to warn the town that bandit Jack Cantrell intends to rob the stage and express office. Case’s sweetheart Della Haines is a passenger on the stage. Case and the Marshal decide on a defense play.
Intelligent B Western
Better than you’d expect given the material.
This material is pretty pedestrian and lots of westerns have been made with similar plot material. The evil boss is VERY common as is the town full of folks who refuse to stand up to the gang of outlaws–as are several other parts of the film. But, the film also has a couple things going for it–fine acting by Davis and a wonderful cliché-violating ending. See the film–see what I mean.
