Storyline

An assailant leaps Tarzan-style from a tree, murdering a wealthy rancher riding a horse. The victim's brother flies cross-country to hire Peter Gunn to disprove the Texas coroner's verdict of accidental death. The Henry Mancini score playfully emphasizes the big city PI sticks out like a gun in a haystack compared to the suspiciously lackadaisical local sheriff, but Gunn rounds up a Texas-size line-up of prime suspects, who might turn and stampede him.

Peter Gunn, The Cowboy!
4 January 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Peter Gunn dressed as a cowboy and in Texas on a horse trying to solve a crime?

Yup. It's not the normal setting for the urban and suave Mr. Gunn (Craig Stevens) but when he gets offered a job by wealthy Texan, it's too good to pass up. The Texan had heard of Gunn's reputation was desperate to come miles up north to hire him to find out the truth in a murder. His brother had died and the coroner had ruled it an accidental death. He knew that was not true, but needed help in proving that.

So, Gunn flies down to Texas, gets some new cowboy duds, and has to figure it all out. Along the way, he runs into some interesting characters. I liked Peggy Stewart as the sister of the dead man.
