[Clay pursues Thompson into the Apache camp]
I'd never have figured that you'd let a gal get you into this kind of a mess - or is it that badge you're wearin'?
I figure I have a pat hand, Thompson.
Against 50 to 1?
My back's all right so long as I'm facing you.

Shotgun is one of those special westerns, that in spite of having no ambitions, came out above average. Lesley Selander had great practice in doing westerns, from the days of Hopalong Cassidy and this is in my opinion his best. The story is about a sheriff searching for the man who killed his boss. Among other weapons he carries a sawed-off shotgun. He rescues Yvonne De Carlo and is joined by bounty hunter Zachary Scott. Part of the writing credits went to Rory Calhoun, an actor who made mostly westerns and one wonders why he did not take the main role for himself. In Brazil this film did quite well at the box office and had a good title "Escreveu seu nome a bala" (He wrote his name with bullets)
