Storyline

When the multiple murderer Cain is released from prison after 18 years, he wants to settle down as a rancher and never touch a gun again. But his former life haunts him; not only that nobody wants to give him a job, some villains also want to pay him back. So he has to accept the offer of showman Ruffalo to perform as "Killer Cain" in his traveling shooting show. However after 18 years without practice even Ruffalo's young assistant Billy shoots better than Cain. Written by Tom Zoerner <Tom.Zoerner@informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

See it – "Even the fastest gun can be beaten. Things are different when the target can shoot back." In this largely unknown western, Clint Walker plays a reformed convict who vows never to use a gun again. Things change when he has trouble finding a job and agrees to become the main attraction of a traveling wild west show. But when the star trick-shooter gets jealous, there could be trouble. This is one of the most unique westerns ever made. It has a great story, a smart script, and a shocking ending. The only problem is that there is a gunfight at the beginning and at the end and nothing in between. If you get bored easily, stay away from this one. Otherwise, enjoy a one-of-a kind western.
