      INFORMATION FROM IMDb

      Plot Summary
      It is only a gun - not a common gun but its mystery is not the unusual manufacture but the fact that it is a dead man's gun. Three stories follow the fate of successive holders of this haunted weapon. The Great McDonacle is a second-rate trick shot artist; in his hands the gun cannot miss even the most difficult shots, but doesn't make him quite fast enough. Jack Fleetwood steals the gun from its sleeping owner; he can salt a mine with it and cheat an honest farmer by convincing him to buy this worthless mine, but the con man can be conned. Cole finds the gun on a skeleton; a fast draw becomes a reality, but tragedy comes to his brother. At the end, the gun is returned to the skeleton, waiting for its next victim.

      I just wanted to clear something up from the original comments I made about "Dead Man's Gun". At the end of the comments I said that I didn't see any voting button to click so I missed it. Well, I just saw it and I just cast my vote for a 9 out of 10 for this film. I originally gave this film an 8 but then I thought it was a little better than an 8 so I gave it a 9. Another reason why I didn't vote on this was because this film was a made-for-TV film and normally whenever I comment on a made-for-TV film there's usually no place where you can place your vote. Another thing: the girl who played Gordon Tootoosis' granddaughter. She appears to be Cheri Maracle but I need to make sure. Anyways, still a good film nonetheless.
