Plot Summary

Sharpshooter Matt Quigley is hired from America by an Australian rancher so he can shoot aborigines at a distance. Quigley takes exception to this and leaves. The rancher tries to kill him for refusing, and Quigley escapes into the brush with a woman he rescued from some of the rancher's men, and are helped by aborigines. Quigley returns the help, before going on to destroy all his enemies. Written by Ed Sutton {esutton@mindspring.com}

Edit
Trivia Sharps Rifles are now so inseparably related to this film that they are commonly nicknamed "Quigley guns." Sales for such weapons increased by over 1000% following the film's release, especially in the United States and Australia, and continue through 2013. See more »
Goofs Quigley lands in Freemantle, Western Australia, and rides overland for more than 3 days, the last 2 on Marston's property, and ends up in desert country. WA is a peninsula surrounded by water on 3 sides so, even though the wagon is shown leaving Freemantle heading south along the coast, the facts only fit a location far east in the Gibson Desert. However Quigley is told in the desert by the gut-shot man that Marston's ranch is 2 days ride south west and the town of 'Michatanga' 20 miles beyond that. Quigley then tells Cora the town is 'a hard day's ride away' and when he gets there it's on the sea. So the ranch must be 20 miles from the sea, and indeed from a small port it seems, so it can't be anywhere near the Gibson desert or a 3 day wagon ride from Freemantle. See more »
