Storyline

On the stagecoach to Laramie, Wayne Santley rescues singer Nora Brown from the advances of gambler Cole Fender. In Laramie, Wayne discovers his brother Brad is an outlaw, but he refuses to join the gang of rustlers and sets up a homestead. He and Nora are married. Later Brad repents and joins his brother, but Brad's former partner Pawnee organizes an attack on the brothers. Despite the source that seems to think so, this was not an M-G-M production. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

His outlaw brother
8 May 2015 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

I'm guessing that B picture director Edward L. Cahn who was of the grind them out school of film making was stuck for a plot and in Gunfight he just remade a film he did five years earlier called Gun Brothers with Buster Crabbe. I can't believe there was such a demand for a remake.

James Brown late of the Rin Tin Tin show plays a soldier fresh out of the army and looking for his brother who says he has a cattle ranch and he wants to go 50/50 with him. But Gregg Palmer is the leader of a notorious and murderous outlaw band who hold up the stagecoach carrying Brown and pretty Joan Staley going to work in the local saloon that they're headed for.

In a short time Brown discovers what Palmer does for a living and the rest of the film is a conflict between the brothers each can't quite trust the other. But blood does prove thicker than water.

Staley sings a pretty song and that's the highlight of Gun Fight. In fact though there's a lot of gun play there's no real gunfight in the sense of two guys just reaching for the weapons and shooting it out face to face.

Gun Fight is definitely made on the cheap and the kind of thing you routinely saw on shows like Gunsmoke.
