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. ...

A good ... but not great Western.
26 December 2012 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

"Gun Glory" has all the elements of why I like to watch Westerns. It never rises to the greatness of such movies as "Shane", to which it has often been compared, but those are rare indeed. You will get old fashioned values, where Christian faith is not something to ridicule although the church hypocrites are still there. There is some quite beautiful cinematography if you look for it, and Stewart Grainger's deft riding skills are on display. The violence is never graphic although central to the plot. Don't look for deep insight into personal relationships, but the conflict between the prodigal father and the abandoned son grown to manhood is even more pertinent today. If you like the modern approach to Westerns you best avoid this one.
