Storyline

Matt Wade escapes from prison and tries to persuade his brother Bill, a reformed gunslinger, to participate in a hold-up. Billy refuses but Matt frames him and he is forced to ride off with the gang. Billy fights with his brother and accidentally kills him, while Matt's teen-aged son, Ted, who thinks his father had been paroled from prison, sees the shooting. Returning to town to explain the true situation, Billy is almost lynched by the townsmen mob who think he was part of the robbery. He escapes and goes back to the gang, pretending to join them but actually looking for evidence to clear himself and turn gang leader, Ike Garvey, over to Marshal Sam Jennings. Only his fiancée Arlene knows of his plan. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Goofs

When the gang is on the hillside above the relay station near the end of the movie, there is an approximately 5-6 second shot of the gang looking down at the station, and in the last 2-3 seconds of the clip, the film is running backward. An outlaw on horseback appears at the bottom of the screen moving forward to join the gang, and when the film reverses he clearly backs up. Also, a branch is visible at the left of the screen bending downward in a gust of wind, and when the film reverses and the horse backs up, the branch moves in the opposite direction. See more »

Arlene: Bill, what will you do now?
Billy Wade: Well, there's only one way out - sell the calves and start all over again.
Arlene: You mean *we* start all over.
Billy Wade: When I square myself with the bank, there won't be enough left to pay the preacher.
Arlene: The bank won't give you an extension and neither will I.

This movie is an exact remake of 1953's "Gun Belt"
18 September 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I thought that there was something similar when I watched this movie. I was watching the Western Station ,and as I got into the movie,I realized that I had seen the same plot just the week before. After some searching,I realized "Five Guns To Tombstone" was exactly the same as "Gun Belt" that came out in 1953.The plot was exactly the same in each movie.The lead character,Billy,was Billy Ringo in "Gun Belt" and Billy Wade in this movie.George Montgomery and Tab Hunter were uncle and nephew in "Gun Belt" and had the same feelings for each other as the uncle and nephew had in this one. Ike was the bad guy in both and did exactly the same murderous deeds in both movies.The movie ended the same in both movies.Both movies were lousy.The acting was bad in both except "Five Guns To Tombstone" was probably worse only because George Montgomery and Tab Hunter were better actors. Looks like the writers of this movie must have had writers' block and someone said,"Hey.let's remake "Gun Belt".VERY BAD DECISION!!
