The Sheepman was touted as a comedy by some of MGM's publicity people. It really isn't, but this western does have its lighthearted moments. Glenn Ford stars as a hard-bitten sheep farmer, running up against the opposition of cattle ranchers. Shirley MacLaine is a no-nonsense frontier girl who becomes the bone of contention between Ford and cattle baron Leslie Nielsen. Ford is able to get a leg-up in the community by humiliating Nielsen's top gun (Mickey Shaughnessy) in public. The range war comes to an end when Ford and Nielsen go one-to-one. Because The Sheepman didn't do well in its initial engagements, MGM reissued the picture under the more aggressive title The Stranger With a Gun.~Hal Erickson
I saw this movie years ago when it first came out at my local theater. I have been searching for this one for years along with The Cowboy also starring Glen Ford. I have always liked Glen Ford, especially in Westerns. This movie has comedy, action and of course by its title, it is not your typical "Cowboy" movie.
