Goofs

When Chad Lucas (Audie Murphy) leads the posse after the outlaws who have abducted Warren Stevens' girl he has a rifle holstered on the right under his saddle with the butt of the rifle next to the rump of the horse. He uses the rifle to fight off Apaches in some subsequent scenes. After the Apache attack Warren Stevens hands him his rifle and he mounts the horse rifle still in hand. When the scene switches, the rifle is back in the scabbard/holster. In one of the following scenes, the group ride up to a campfire used by the outlaws. The right side of Chad's horse can be clearly seen in a fairly close shot, and the rifle is not in it's holster, and Chad does not have it in his hand. Whoever on the set was responsible for seeing that Audie's gear was ready for the scene neglected to check this very important item. Once the posse starts to climb up the mountain the rifle is once again safely ensconced in its receptacle. See more »

What A Posse Audie Murphy Had
10 March 2007 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

There's a murderous outlaw named Drago played by Morgan Woodward who keeps committing all kinds of crime in the state of Colorado and then running back to the New Mexico territory where the local sheriffs can't catch him.

That's not going to stop Audie Murphy, sheriff of Lodgepole, Colorado. Woodward's robbed a train that was carrying funds for the bank and because he's got the town nest egg, a lot of businesses will fold.

Murphy puts together a posse to go after Woodward and it's some posse, with just about everybody in it working off their own agenda. There is no way Murphy should have accomplished his mission in this film.

Which is of course why Gunpoint, though entertaining, is highly unrealistic. Still a nice cast of western veterans give Murphy some good support. Particular to note are Warren Stevens as the saloon owner and Edgar Buchanan as a leader of a family of equally bad rawhiders whose camp the posse stumbles across.

Gunpoint has a lot of action and a great cast that make up for a highly unrealistic story.
