Years after doing nice supporting turns, Jim Davis does fine as the lead in Noose for a Gunman
10 August 2012 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

Having years of being a supporting player as a good and bad guy in various westerns, here, Jim Davis is the lead playing someone in the middle as Case Britton, who left town after shooting a couple of men for gunning down his marshal brother and is now back to warn the current marshal about a robber named Jack Cantrell (Ted de Corsia) awaiting a stagecoach to pilfer. His reasons, however, are personal as there's a woman named Della Haines (Lyn Thomas), who he plans to marry, inside. I'll stop there and just say this was another thrilling oater of Davis' that I'm glad to have seeked out on Netflix streaming. Fine direction by Edward L. Cahn helped immensely as well as good supporting turns by, besides the above, Harry Carey, Jr., Barton MacLane, Walter Sande, and Leo Gordon, among others. So on that note, Noose for a Gunman comes recommended.
