A gunfighter can never retire.
1 September 2016 | by See all my reviews

An aging gunslinger, Will Gorman, is getting tired of living up to his reputation and decides to settle down in a town where his good friend, Colonel Overton, has a ranch nearby. When Gorman arrives he finds the Colonel is married to his former girlfriend, Marcy. Right from the beginning we know that Marcy still has feeling for the gunslinger which can only lead to problems. Gorman turns down any advances from Marcy but that does not stop Marcy from wanting to leave her life with the Colonel.

With Gorman trying to start a business in town, Marcy tells the Colonel that she is leaving him and wants to go with Gorman. The Colonel has had enough and is set on a gunfight with the tired gunslinger.

This is a plot that has been used many times in nearly every western series. Even though the actors were excellent the story just did not stir much excitement. In fact the story felt long and with little action. We did get to see a young Micheal Landon playing a young punk kid with a gun complex but his contribution to the story was as predictable as rain on the plains in Spain. An average offering.
