i liked this western.it isn't the greatest western i have seen,but i thought it was mostly well acted,i found the story interesting,and i thought there was some good chemistry between the characters.it's well paced,with a fair amount of action and some excitement.Randolph Scott is the lead actor in the movie,and i thought he was OK,except he seemed a bit too old for the part.but maybe that's just me and my imagination.Claire Trevor(Stagecoach,1939))also stars,and is great.Ernest Borgnine appears as well.there are some other well known actors of the time,(and genre)as well,but i can't recall their names.by the way,this movie was originally filmed in 3D,so it looks a bit cheesy when objects are thrust toward the screen.for me,The Stranger Wore a Gun is a 6/10
