The Gunfighter (1950)



Reviews and Comments

Director Henry King has created a fine character portrait in this compelling western about a famous gunfighter who's tired of his notoriety and the trouble it brings him. There's a hint of film noir in the story and the cinematography, and it blends perfectly with the western setting. Gregory Peck's performance as the title character ranks with his best.
