El Paso - not just a hot sauce!
11 November 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

But also a Marty Robbins song that forms the basis of this curio Western. There's no point beating around the bush here, this is a bad film that's full of auto-cue acting, lame clichés and bizarre moments. Robbins as it happens is not half bad, but you can see he's not totally comfortable with performing this way.

The plot has Robbins as a Robin Hood type outlaw who gets involved in a love triangle whilst coming to realise his partners in crime are not to be trusted. Cue chases, fist fights, rickety sets, a bit of outrageous gymnastics and finally the El Paso song, which is the best part of the picture!

Filmed in Eastmancolor, the available print out there is poor, so bad in fact I personally chose to fade the colour out and watch in black and white. All told The Ballad of a Gunfighter is an oddity, but very hard to recommend with any sort of confidence. 3/10
