      Plot Summary
      Zeb Smith is a gambler with a larcenous streak,
      but when an itinerant preacher takes a bullet meant for him,
      Zeb vows to fulfill the preacher's mission of building a church.
      Frustrated in his attempts to get donations,
      Zeb attempts to capture fugitive Doll Brown in order to obtain the reward.
      But he finds that there's more to Doll than meets the eye.
      When his old friend Bucky McLean shows up gunning for Doll,
      Zeb sees a chance to redeem them all... one way or another.

      A truly great B movie

      The review by Filmaven tickled me. I feared I was alone in believing this movie is one of the greats.

      Marie Windsor, a fine actress in any role, just outdid herself in this film.

      Bill Elliott was even better than usual, and so were all the other actors.

      Best of all, though, was an excellent script, one definitely worthy of A movie budgeting and distributing.

      There is a quality in this movie that is sadly lacking in most modern films,
      and the emphasis on a story line is one aspect that elevates "Hellfire" above the mass of films
