Storyline

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. Although the preacher tries to explain that the people own the land, Grimsell is not interested in their rights. When Blondie sees Tom Early, he draws his gun but is shot by Tom, in self defense, and kills the gunman. He then invites Jo to work on the farm. 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. ...

Pleasant, well-acted, but somewhat violent western
18 September 2000 | by (Savannah, GA) – See all my reviews

GUN GLORY reminds me once again what a pleasure it is to watch Stewart Grainger and Rhonda Fleming. Grainger took a relaxed approach to his roles, much like Van Johnson but without as much smugness. Grainger plays a family man who has become a drifter, a gambler and a gunfighter. Coming home after learning the futility of "chasing rainbows," he returns to his ranch, only to discover his wife is dead and his son wants no part of him. He hires Rhonda Fleming to keep house for him, and she works to bring father and son together. Fleming is, without doubt, the most beautiful and shapely redhead to ever grace the movie screen (yes, including Maureen O'Hara). Here, once again, she proves she can act as well. It's a pity Hollywood didn't take her more seriously. All of the adults are top notch; however, the actor who play the son is only OK, and the actor who plays the young gunfighter is laughably bad. Top acting honor goes to Chill Wills as a wise, nonjudgemental reverand. Exquisitely photographed in Metrocolor and Cinemascope, GUN GLORY is always easy to watch. The story could have used a few more twists, and the climax seems a bit too easy. However, this is a movie that can, for the most part, be enoyed by the entire family.
