Storyline

Henrickson plays Frank Morgan, a notorious and feared gunfighter that has lived his life on the run. His face and eyes reveal a man that has been very much hardened by that life. We quickly learn, however, that there is still passion inside. Upon receiving a telegram from Linda, an old lover (played by Kay Lenz), requesting his presence, he abandons his woman, mounts his horse and rides to Linda without giving it a second thought. Upon arrival, he learns that Linda is now happily married to the owner of the local general store. The only vestige of her past that remains is a daughter, who Frank is surprised to learn is his. The daughter, of course, does not know about Frank. Linda, not wanting her to know that her father was a notorious gunfighter has given her a fictional father that died a hero's death at the First Battle of Bull Run. Frank quickly learns that Linda's reason for calling for him has nothing to do with romantic feelings. She wants him to protect her husband. It seems ... Written by Dave Gan <longbow@bigfoot.com>

Outstanding surprise
25 July 2000 | by See all my reviews

Q. How to add yet another Western to the world's vast library of movies that is both: (one) not completely predictable and (two) shamelessly plays up to Western hero stereotypes?

A. Gunfighter's Moon.

I loved everything about this movie and hope to find a widescreen version of it someday if such a thing exists. Although I have only seen this movie on pay movie channels, I was very impressed by the quality of the sound. Guns exploded. And (specially in the screen where the hero "kidnaps" the beautiful girl) the gallop of each horse pounded like thunder!

I hope everyone who sees this movie finds enjoyment.
