This film was shot in 3-D. However, director Raoul Walsh only had one eye, so he was never able to see the film in the process in which he shot it. The same situation occurred when director André De Toth, who also had only one eye, shot the 3-D film House of Wax (1953). See more »

Very good...worth seeing
6 June 2017 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

While you don't generally associate Rock Hudson with westerns, earlier in his career he did several...including, amazingly enough, some where he played American Indians! Here in "Gun Fury" he is in a western...and fortunately he does NOT play a native!

When the story begins, Jennifer (Donna Reed) is on her way out west to meet her fiancé, Ben Warren (Hudson). However, a gang leader, Frank Slayton (Philip Carey) has set his eyes on Jennifer...and after robbing the stage and leaving Ben for dead, he absconds with the woman! His gang isn't thrilled with the idea...killing folks and stealing is fine...but why bring along this captive?! When Jess (Leo Gordon) argues with Slayton, his boss beats him senseless and leaves him behind! Soon, Ben and Jess band together to trail the gang, as both men want Slayton!

This is a very good film...with excellent acting, a taut script and enough different about this to make it stand out from the bazillion of other westerns out there. Also, the Sedona, Arizona scenery is amazing...a lovely backdrop to the story.
