Overview

Synopsis

The Savage Guns
A little talkative but otherwise up to par, this western by director Michael Carreras in cooperation with a Madrid studio, is set in the Mexican valley of Sonora not that far south of the state of Arizona. The time is just after the American Civil War, and a former Confederate officer, Mike Summers (Don Taylor) has taken refuge in a small town in the valley. He has married and is hoping to live in peace the rest of his life. Instead, he and his wife and the rest of the town are suffering the depredations of a brutal gunman, Danny Pose (Alex Nicol), and his gang of outlaws. Summers holds off picking up a gun because of his personal vow of non-violence. But the situation deteriorates and a new ally comes into the picture, Steve Fallon (Richard Basehart), a wandering gunslinger who may not be able to handle the bad guys alone. ~ Eleanor Mannikka, Rovi

Fighting Mad
Lambert (William Stowell), a doctor and a minister, comes to live in a Western town with his wife (Helen Gibson). But she is enticed away by a gambler named West (Hector Dion). She returns, but dies in childbirth and Lambert loses his faith and any desire to help anyone. He places the baby on a doorstep and leaves town to wander aimlessly. Many years pass and he returns to the town and meets Lily Sawyer (Mildred Davis), who works at a hotel belonging to Smith (Alfred Allen). Because of the young girl's sweet personality, Lambert starts thinking about becoming a member of the human race again. Then West comes to town and lusts after Lily. West's partner, Fanny (Betty Schade), tells Lambert that Lily is his daughter. Lambert kills West before he can lay a hand on Lily, and soon after, his faith in God is restored. ~ Janiss Garza, Rovi

The Sundowners
Filmed in a two-tone process called Cinecolor, The Sundowners is a compact little western making good use of an old Hollywood chestnut. Robert Preston and Robert Sterling play two brothers who find themselves on opposite sides of the legal fence. Since Sterling rather than Preston has the mustache this time, Sterling's the bad guy. Caught in the crossfire is Preston's son, who is menaced by Sterling. This 1950 version should not be confused with the 1960 Warners film of the same name, which is set on an Australian sheep ranch. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

The Gatling Gun
This Western presents a fictionalized account of the ways in which the Gatling gun was created. Also chronicled are its tremendous effects on the great frontier. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi
