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.

Trivia

The town scenes late in the film were shot in the ghost town of Bannack, now a Montana State Park. Bannack was the first capital of the Montana Territory and did have a brief history of vigilante hangings, and while the governor was not hanged, one of the sheriffs was, the infamous Henry Plummer. Many buildings from the 1800s remain in Bannack, including the brick Hotel Meade. See more »

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.
