"The Fastest Gun Alive" (1956)
-Glen Ford, Broderick Crawford, Jeanie Crain
Plot Synopsis: IMDB.com
Whenever it becomes known how good he is with guns, ex-gunman George and his wife Dora have to flee the town, in fear of all the gunmen who might want to challenge him. Unfortunately he again spills his secret when he's drunk. All citizens swear to keep his secret and support him to give up his guns forever -- but a boy tells the story to a gang of wanted criminals. Their leader threatens to burn down the whole town, if he doesn't duel him.
Phantom's Review: Very well acted, character driven western. Glen Ford is fine (as always) as the Ex-gunman hiding from his past and Broderick Crawford is great as the bad guy. The only problem I had with the film is, about 15 minutes in to it, the film comes to a halt so they can have a song and dance number with actor Russ Tamblyn (who starred in everything from "West Side Story" to "War Of The Gargantuas"). Other than that, it's a fine movie.
