Storyline

On the stagecoach to Laramie, Wayne Santley rescues singer Nora Brown from the advances of gambler Cole Fender. In Laramie, Wayne discovers his brother Brad is an outlaw, but he refuses to join the gang of rustlers and sets up a homestead. He and Nora are married. Later Brad repents and joins his brother, but Brad's former partner Pawnee organizes an attack on the brothers. Despite the source that seems to think so, this was not an M-G-M production.

Trivia

When the wounded Wayne and Nora are in brother Brad's cabin preparing to leave, you see the 'logs' of the wall behind them. Each log is perfectly straight, unvarying width, and has exactly the same coarse bark pattern as each of the others. See more »

Low budget remake of a low budget western
16 June 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie was a remake of the Buster Crabbe, Ann Robinson western titled "Gun Brothers". It was as bad or worse than the original, which was probably a remake of an earlier B-Western. Anyway "Gun Fight" was made almost word for word and scene for scene from "Gun Brothers" with James Brown and Joan Staley taking the Buster Crabbe and Ann Robinson roles. Gregg Palmer (who appeared in a lot of John Wayne's later westerns after gaining about 70 lbs and a beard) took the role that Neville Brand had in the original, and doing a fair job, as he did in "The Creature Walks Among Us" sequel to "The Creature From the Black Lagoon". Ron Soble's character was played by Michael Ansara (T.V.'s "Cochise") in the original. Worth watching if you remember James Brown as Lt. Rip Masters in the "Rin Tin Tin" T.V. series.
