Notorious gunman Quirt Evans is wounded and on the run. He arrives at a Quaker farm owned by Thomas Worth and his family where he collapses from exhaustion. Evans asks Thomas and his daughter Penelope to drive him into town in their wagon in order to send an urgent telegram. The telegram contains a land claim and is sent to the land recorder's office. The Quaker family is ignoring the town doctor's advice to rid themselves of the gunfighter and they compassionately tend to the delirious Evans. Penny Worth becomes intrigued by his ravings of past loves.When Evans regains consciousness, Penny explains to him about the Quaker credo of non-violence and way of life. Three weeks later, two desperadoes, Laredo Stevens and Hondo Jeffries, ride into town looking for Evans.Penny's younger brother, Johnny, rushes home to inform Evans of his visitors and Evans prepares to flee. Penny, now smitten with Evans, offers to run off with him. Upon hearing the sound of approaching horses, Evans grabs his... Written by nufs68

Trivia

The passage Randy reads from Quirt's Bible is from either 2 Samuel 23:20-1 or 1 Chronicles 11:22-3. See more »

Goofs

In the next to the last scene in the movie where the Marshal (Harry Carey) shoots Hondo and Laredo, he kills them with two rapid shots before they can shoot. In the reverse it shows the Marshal cocking his lever action rifle. It would be impossible to fire two shots so rapidly if you had to lever the rifle between shots. See more »

Quotes

[after Laredo visits the ranch and pays Quirt for the land, Quirt prepares to leave and puts some of the money in a can for the Worths]
Mrs. Worth: Oh no, Quirt, no!
Quirt Evans: What kind of a boarder do you think I am?
Thomas Worth: You can't do that. We'd tend to any wounded human... and not for pay.
Quirt Evans: You don't believe in force - so you can't force me to take it back.
Mrs. Worth: I'm afraid you're outwitted, Thomas.
Quirt Evans: How long have I been here?
Quirt Evans: Almost three weeks.
Quirt Evans: Kinda hate to get goin'.
Mrs. Worth: Oh, but you can't... your leg... you're in no condition ...

A great story of a man changing for love
3 March 2001 | by (Little Rock) – See all my reviews

This is one of Wayne's best movies, the simple but powerful story of a man changing for the love of a woman. It is always a great introduction to John Wayne for someone who has not appreciated his work, his best movies are about love and redemption. The Quiet Man, Stagecoach and The Angel and The Badman, are among the best movies ever made.
