Storyline

When cowboy Lefty Brown witnesses the murder of his longtime partner, the newly-elected Senator Edward Johnson, he strikes out to find the killers and avenge his friend's cold-blooded murder. Tracking the outlaws across the vast and desolate Montana plains, Lefty stumbles across a young wannabe gunslinger, Jeremiah, and an old friend, a former hard-drinking pal turned U.S. Marshal, to help deliver the men to justice. After a gunfight with the outlaws leaves Jeremiah wounded, Lefty returns home with the names of Johnson's killers only to find that he is being accused of his friend's murder by the governor. With the tables turned Lefty must evade the law, get the Marshal to stop drinking again, and prove his innocence by exposing the powerful men ultimately responsible for Johnson's death.

Goofs

The barn is a modern barn. As seen by the steel plate and bolt at the bottom of the edge of the big door, it has a concrete foundation, which is something that would never exist out in the middle of nowhere. See more »

Quotes

Jimmy Bierce: [with his head in the noose] Years from now, there'll be statues of me everywhere in Montana. It's not easy. But I did my job. Years from now, they'll be thanking me for it. Think so?
Lefty Brown: Years from now, I reckon all these folks'll remember seeing you hang, but in a week, it's me that the law will come after. And if'n they catch me, I reckon I'll be looking out at the same faces as you.
[kicks the chair out from under him]

Enjoyed this film more upon second viewing. In the last two years, I think I'm finally coming to understand that I need to be a dedicated consumer of the visual arts or I'm wasting everyone's time. The concept behind this film, the idea of focusing on a dimwitted sick kick rather than his confident partner, is a great idea. Lefty Brown (Bill Pullman) grew on me as the film progressed. I'm not sure he created his own luck but he definitely had it in spades. Joining him is the two-gun rig sporting Jeremiah (Diego Josef) and a grief stricken alcoholic Marshall Tom Harrah (Tommy Flanagan). Blondie, the cool and competent killer for hire provides a challenging adversary but I found his departure from the film is a wee bit anticlimactic. Overall, The Ballad of Lefty Brown is a good modern western and will keep genre loving fans, like myself, very content. Right on.
