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. Marshall, 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 Marshall to stop drinking again, and prove his innocence by exposing the powerful men ultimately responsible for Johnson's death.

Goofs

Although Lefty does not appear to be left-handed -- he shoots right handed, rides right-handed (holding the reins in his left hand so that his right hand is free), and wears his sidearm on the left side, butt forward, so that he can draw it with his right hand -- he could have gotten the nickname for some other characteristic or habit.

The Ballad of the Suppressed Laughter
7 October 2017 | by fai-90469See all my reviews

I have seen a lot of western movies but none of them was as bad as The Ballad of Lefty Brown. Let me say up front that Bill Pullmans performance was the only good thing in it. It seems that the producers spent most of their money on him. Unfortunately he is not able to save the movie from being a debacle. The acting of the other characters is TERRIBLE, especially from the boy. The cinematography is quite lazy. With a such a spectacular landscape(Montana) you could do better. The colors of the movie are all over the place and the tone is inconsistent during the movie. I did like the grainy feel(shot on Kodak film) but in some of the night shots it was way to dark for me to see and it didn't feel like a stylistic element done on purpose. The editing is also worth mentioning...The fight scenes where done in the usual boring technique we are so used to see from Hollywood movies. No punch is actually seen, only a cut accompanied with a very unrealistic sound effect. The shootouts where a joke! Sometimes they take cover behind bushes and thin wooden planks. The people in the movie all look very clean, the leather holsters, saddles, etc seem like fresh out of production. The story is soo unrealistic all the time and the characters in it are plain stupid..all of them! The script...what where they thinking??? Now I know that western movies are not realistic but this movie had just so many flaws and it was hard to be quiet during its run time to not ruin other peoples experiences. This film should be called "The Ballad of the suppressed Laughter"...at least for me.
