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.Written by

Lefty Brown was based off the gunslinger Lefty BJ Wheeler. See more »
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.

A gritty, beautifully filmed, and timeless classic of the old west. William Pullman's performance is as outstanding as it is complex. His characterization is believable, endearing, and worthy of an Oscar. Throughout the course of the film Lefty becomes the cowboy legend he, in essence, always has been. The writing is stirring and kept me glued to the screen. Kudos!
