Quotes

Will Gorman: Now, listen to me boy. When you start with a gun you become something that people hate and fear. And they're just waitin. Waitin' for someone to come along just a little bit faster than you. Then they'll spit on your grave and buy drinks for the winner.

Brush with the grim reaper
24 January 2017 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

This Zane Grey Theater story stars Howard Keel as another aging gunfighter who would desperately like to get out of the life and settle down. A theme that has been done a Gazillion times before best done in the film The Gunfighter that starred Gregory Peck.

In fact what put Keel to thinking as he now does is that he was wounded in a gunfight and barely made out alive. A brush with the grim reaper usually adjusts everyone's thinking.

But where he settles near an old friend John Dehner promises trouble. Dehner's wife is an old girlfriend of Keel's Jean Willes who has an itch she wants Keel to scratch.

And Dehner is raising a 16 year old nephew played Michael Landon who also is a left handed draw like his Little Joe Cartwright. Landon thinks he just might like being a fast draw gunfighter.

Nice performances all around and the result is an unusual one.
