As noted by the person who reviewed this movie, this was Doug McClure's last movie before he was lost at the early age of 65 to cancer. He played a gun hand for Peyton McKay (Bruce Dern) and his character name was Granger. In The Virginian, his character Trampas worked for John and Clay Granger at the Shiloh Ranch. Rest in peace, Mr. McClure. See more »


Beesly: Sir, you look like a man of means. Maybe you'd like to purchase one of these here prints. The name's Beesly - professional photographer and visual historian, specializing in the dead.
Tom Hatcher: Dead what?
Beesly: Whatever chooses to be, sir... made eternal by the science of photochemistry. I particularly favor the criminal element as there appears to be a cultural victory in their death and a social interest in their lives. Sir, you appear to be somewhat of that caliber yourself.

Adult Western in the Genre of High Noon
27 April 2004 | by hhbooker2-1See all my reviews

Not since Gary Cooper starred in High Noon has there been an adult Western like "Dead Man's Revenge" which starred Bruce Dern and Tobin Bell as the "bad guys," it also starred Doug McClure, this was his last movie prior to his death from cancer, he was brave up to the last and always in good spirits on the set! Also in this motion picture was Larry Polsen as the bartender who added so much as a character actor with his distinctive gaunt looks. Herbert H. Booker 2nd (Sarge) was the Piano Player, a ruggedly handsome longhaired bearded character, who like the bartender, added so much to the background colour of this remarkable film. Vondie Curtis-Hall turned in an excellent portrayal of an African-American in the old West in a role that was not servile and demeaning, but pride and dignity to the role of the black cowboy, he would rank with Herb Jeffries, the Bronze Buckaroo! Believe it or not, Michael Ironsides who is the main star is also the good guy! Melora Walters plays Bunny, a strong woman who ranks among Barbara Stanwyck and Kathrine Hepburn. This is a "must-rent" or own movie available on VHS video and DVD. This is the best Adult Western since "High Noon" and "Shane."
