In 1886, the gunman and gambler Tom Early returns to his homeland to settle down, but he is rejected by his community. He rides to his farm, where he finds that his wife Alice has recently died and his son Tom Early Jr., who disagrees with taking up arms, is working alone. The next morning, Tom rides into the town to buy supplies and sees Sam, the grocer, humiliating his employee Jo. At the same time the cattle lord Grimsell arrives in town with two gunfighters, Gunn and Blondie, and tells the Preacher that he will be crossing 20,000 head of cattle through their lands and their town.

While the Preacher wants to send an emissary to Laramie to bring the law to his town, Grimsell summons more than thirty gunfighters to work for him. ... Written by

Stewart Granger returns to his home and trouble with James Gregory
"Gun Glory" (1957) is a solid western, no masterpiece and certainly no dud. An industry that could produce quality movies like this as popular entertainment could win worldwide respect and influence. This movie has a steady and somewhat subdued tone to it, lacking a sharp edge, but it has its share of western shootouts and one quite spectacular cattle stampede precipitated by the dynamiting of a narrow canyon. The acting is very good all the way around. Like many western stories, the basic conflict has to do with property rights. What's private and what's a public right of way over which cattle can graze and travel to market? The cattle baron in this case is James Gregory. His right hand man is the rather violent Arch Johnson. Stewart Granger, who has a gunslinger reputation, has come back home only to find his wife has died and his young adult son quite alienated from him. But together they begin to manage the family farm that lies in the way of Gregory's preferred route to market for his 20,000 head herd. Rhonda Fleming is invited in as housekeeper and comes to occupy the romantic spot in Granger's heart.
