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
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
