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.

Bill Pullman is terrific in this slow moving but heartfelt film
13 December 2017 | by DouglasHallSee all my reviews

Pullman gives an idiosyncratic, detailed performance as Lefty.

Watch Pullman closely for only a minute or two, and then you will not be able to take your eyes away from watching his inspired acting in this wonderfully filmed western.

Needed more development between Lefty and his long-time friend Edward (Fonda) though - so we the audience feel the deep friendship as well.

Pullman as Lefty, in spite of his drawbacks as a simple, but well meaning ranch hand totally convinces us that heart, loyalty, friendship, and honor do indeed matter.

Never ever count out that person to do the right thing all the way to the end.

We would all be lucky to have a caring, determined friend like Lefty. - AVS
