Goofs

When Helen throws her drink on Spangler, there is an outlaw with a blue-green jacket on at the end of the bar with both forearms on the bar. Another man is approximately 3 feet from him lying on his side on the bar. The shot changes to focus on the men in the background. The man in the blue-green jacket has now turned around with his right elbow on the bar. There is a third man behind the bar behind the feet of the prone man, previously unseen. See more »

Quotes

Cagle: Well, he sure wasn't bluffing about them barricades, or them gunhands he's got behind them.
Jud Spangler: Gunhands? There ain't ten men in the whole town that knows which end of the gun does the shooting.
Donovan,: Yeah, well, I'd sure hate to find out by having them practicing on me!
Jud Spangler: Listen to me! I'll tell you when you get shot and when not! You understand that? Don't forget it!

The siege of the town
29 October 2014 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Other than Ted DeCorsia's over the top performance as an outlaw gang leader, The Quick Gun will never rate as one of Audie Murphy's better big screen westerns.

After Murphy does not accept DeCorsia's offer to get cut in on bank robbery in his old home town, Murphy who was going there anyway goes double quick to warn them. His own reputation as a gunslinger precedes him though and the townfolk are skeptical. Two of them uncle and nephew Walter Sande and Rex Holman want to kill him because of range war that took Murphy's father and Sande's two sons.

But his friend sheriff James Best does believe him and so does the school teacher Merry Anders who has them both on a string and the town prepares.

What comes after that is for you to see, but all I can say is Best the sheriff makes one colossally stupid mistake and the plot flows from there. But don't doubt that Audie doesn't save the day after most of the cast is killed in the siege of the town.

Definitely not as good as some of his work for Universal in the previous decade.
