Audience Reviews for The Gunfighter

½

Terrific western drama of the deadiest shot in the Old West who returns to his old hometown and resumes his family together.

Good western. Gregory Peck plays notorious gunfighter Jimmy Ringo, who gets challenged by every wannabe at every turn. The Gunfighter has a similar story to High Noon, but without any gunfights and a tense finale, it's a lot less memorable. Overall well worth your consideration if your a fan of Peck or this genre.
