Goofs

When the coins were thrown in the air and shot at, everyone anxiously awaited the thrower's determination as to whether or not each coin was hit. He then picked it up from the ground not far from where he was standing each time, and they were hit all but one time. The coins that were hit would have been knocked many feet away from him in the air. See more »

Decent Remake
21 February 2010 | by (The Lonesome Prairie) – See all my reviews

This television remake of the Jimmy Stewart classic finds sheriff Tom Tryon and his no-good cousin John Saxon competing for the title weapon, being offered up as a prize in a shooting contest by Saxon's father Dan Duryea. When he loses, the vile Saxon kills Tryon's father and takes off with the gun and both of his cousins in pursuit.

This isn't as loosely plotted or episodic as the original film, nor as great. Still, it's a pretty good TV movie with more of a theatrical feel to it than other movies-of-the-week, with some entertaining action scenes.

John Drew Barrymore stands out and delivers an interesting, amusing performance as a long-haired member of Saxon's gang, who talks and dresses like a preacher and drives a hearse!

A couple of the actors from the 1950 version return, most notably Dan Duryea.

The Winchester looks exactly like the one from the original film, with the same etchings and brass plaque on the stock. It wouldn't surprise me to learn that Universal dug through it's prop department and dusted off the same gun.
