Storyline

Chad Santee heads west to join his brother, Jubal, who supposedly has a large cattle ranch. On the way he meets Rose Fargo and rescues her from the unwanted advances of a gambler, "Blackjack". When Chad and Rose arrive they find that Jubal and his partner, Shawnee, are really rustlers and outlaws. Jubal tries to get Chad to join them but he refuses, and leaves to set up his own homestead with Rose at his side. Later, the repentant Jubal comes to join him. Shawnee, angry at what he considers a double-cross, attacks the brothers with his gang. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Goofs

When the stagecoach gets held up early in the movie, they are on a large dirt road and the team of horses is taken from the coach. As they camp that night, a large rock appears next to the rear wheel of the coach. This is an obvious interior shot much different from the earlier exterior shot. See more »

Quotes

Shawnee Jack: You better stop spoilin' her. First thing you know, she'll be followin' you around like a shadow.
Chad Santee: Well, if we had done a little more Indian spoiling in the past, it'd save a heap of fightin' and a heap of dyin'.

Santee Family Values
28 August 2017 | by See all my reviews

Buster Crabbe and Neville Brand play a pair of brothers named Santee in Gun Brothers. Crabbe has served in the cavalry while Brand says he now has a ranch in the Wyoming territory. But Brand is really an outlaw and cattle rustling is only one of his gang's enterprises. Crabbe who hoped to partner with his brother figures that out quickly, but won't rat him out to law enforcement.

Which puts him in a highly vulnerable position with only saloon singer Ann Robinson as a real ally. It all works out in the end, but not after a lot of blood is spilled in this independent B western from United Artists.

Crabbe was a much better actor than a lot give him credit for and this is a film he shows it. He and Neville Brand play beautifully off each other as the good and bad brother Santee.

Some familiar faces are in this one. Michael Ansara as a mixed race outlaw and Brand's right hand is a villain without any redeemable qualities. One of the best to come along of that breed until Lee Marvin played the title role in The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance. Roy Barcroft who was in about a gazillion westerns for Republic for once is on the side of the law as a sheriff. Slim Pickens has a small role as a fur trapper and Lita Milan who had one tempestuous marriage to Rory Calhoun plays an Indian maid who also falls for Crabbe while she's Ansara's property and I do mean property.

Lots of gun play and violence to satisfy any B western fan and a bit of stargazing as well.
