Darren McGavin is surprisingly good as gunslinger set to kill Matt Dillon
Mark and Paul Douglas hired a gunslinger named Joe Bascome (Darren McGavin) to kill Marshall Matt Dillon. But before the match, Joe gets into another gunfight when these three people were assaulting a Chineese man and his daughter, Ching Lee. During the gunfight Joe is able to kill all three men but gets injured in the exchange of gunfire.
Ching Lee was so grateful for the help that she nurses Joe back to health. But all the time the Douglas brothers are always close wanting Joe to take care of Matt Dillon.
After many months Joe is back on his feet and finds himself falling in love with Ching Lee. Joe plans to give up the gunslinger's life and perhaps settle down. This does not set to well with the Douglas brothers and their actions force Joe to follow through with the commitment to shoot Matt.
The young Darren McGavin is surprisingly good as the gunslinger Joe Bascome. Forget his other acting gigs, you really believed that Darrin was a professional killer in the way he played this part. France Nuyen is flawless, not only in her outward beauty, but also in her portrayal of Ching Lee.-- A very nice and entertaining story that came across the screen very well.
