Storyline

Preacher Sam Stone and his new beautiful wife Jill stand by the grave of Sheriff Billy Kelly, who died trying to bring law-and-order to Emporia, Wyoming. Among the mourners are businessman George Gates, mayor Ned West and his daughter Patricia. The mayor rejects Gates' suggestion that he release gunfighter Waco from jail to clean up the town. When Patricia is attacked by a cowboy after leaving her boyfriend Scotty Moore, the mayor finally decides it is time accept the governor;s offer of amnesty for Waco. Jill Stone's first reaction, when learning that Waco has been released, is to leave town before Waco finds out that she, his former fiancée, has married the town preacher while Waco was in jail. Town boss Joe Gore is not overjoyed, either, but Ike and Pete Jenner eagerly await the chance to shoot Waco for the death of their brother. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Trivia

Original Pressbook publicity announcement: MAJOR MUSIC SPECIAL - Lorne Greene Records "Waco": In a major music promotion for Paramount's "Waco", Lorne Greene has recorded the title song for an RCA Victor Records single being released in coordination with the general release of the film. Greene, star of TV's famed Bonanza (1959), has recorded the Hal Blair-Jimmie Haskell number in a style highly reminiscent of his successful "Ringo". The "Waco" platter will be given heavy disc-jockey coverage and retail promotion throughout the country. See more »

Great western story and casting.
7 May 2002 | by (Texas,USA) – See all my reviews

I love this film because it shows that people can and do change for the better, and that's what Waco thought he hadn't changed after a long time in prison, but he had and for the good of the town and the people in it.
