Storyline

It is only a gun - not a common gun but its mystery is not the unusual manufacture but the fact that it is a dead man's gun. Three stories follow the fate of successive holders of this haunted weapon. The Great McDonacle is a second-rate trick shot artist; in his hands the gun cannot miss even the most difficult shots, but doesn't make him quite fast enough. Jack Fleetwood steals the gun from its sleeping owner; he can salt a mine with it and cheat an honest farmer by convincing him to buy this worthless mine, but the con man can be conned. Cole finds the gun on a skeleton; a fast draw becomes a reality, but tragedy comes to his brother. At the end, the gun is returned to the skeleton, waiting for its next victim.

Ryan Mallard makes the film.
7 May 2017 | by lpetterson-95858See all my reviews

I'm not sure who he is, or where he is now, but Ryan Mallard made this film what it was. I came into this film not knowing what to expect, needless to say, I was truly mesmerized by his on-screen performance. So raw, delicate, and simply beautiful. Truly brought this film from excellent to exceptional. I pray that his talent continues to be utilized in future films. I tip my hat to you, Mr. Mallard.
