Overview

Synopsis

Gunsight Ridge
In this western, the trouble begins when a ruthless outlaw impersonates a mine owner. When the sheriff begins to suspect him, the bad guy kills him. A government agent, working undercover, replaces the sheriff, exposes the crook and wins the love of a local woman in the process. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi

Gun Belt
Technically a "B" western, Gun Belt is a notch or two above the norm. George Montgomery stars as former outlaw Billy Ringo, whose bank-robbing brother Matt (John Dehner) implicates him in a recent holdup. When Matt is killed in a shootout, Matt's son Chip (Tab Hunter) holds Billy responsible. When not trying to clear his name and patch up his family problems, Billy finds time to romance requisite leading lady Helen Westcott. The most tangible asset of Gun Belt is the superb Technicolor photography, courtesy of William Howard Greene. The film was one of several budget-conscious 1950s productions turned out by producer Edward Small for United Artists release. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

The Lone Gun
There are few surprises in The Lone Gun--and few lulls, either. Things get under way when ex-marshal George Montgomery rides into a wide-open Texas town. Montgomery intends to bring three cattle-rustling brothers to justice. Since those siblings are played by Neville Brand, Douglas Kennedy and Robert Wilke, one suspects that Our Hero's task will not be accomplished within the film's first twenty minutes. Taking over a cattle ranch run by Dorothy Malone and her brother Skip Homeier, the villains inaugurate a deadly game of cat and mouse with Montgomery. Frank Faylen scores in an uncharacteristic performance as a dude gambler. The Lone Gun was produced by Edward Small for United Artists. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Ride out for Revenge
In this revisionist western, Captain George (Lloyd Bridges) is a cavalry officer of dubious principles who is given the assignment of escorting a tribe of Cheyenne Indians from the land of their birth to a government reservation. However, as the Cheyenne are en route to their new home, gold is discovered on the land, and suddenly a call goes up to relocate the Indians somewhere else. Tate (Rory Calhoun) is a cavalry scout with a conscience who is determined to see that the Cheyenne are treated fairly, protected from ruthless prospectors as well as hateful lawmen. Gloria Grahame and Vince Edwards highlight the supporting cast. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
