Audience Reviews for The Gunfighter

  • Sep 05, 2019
    Gregory Peck is typically reliable, stoic and worn out as a gunfighter at the end of his run, clutching at the frayed remnants of his life, and just coming to the realization that it's already too late. Not bad.

    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.

    probably one of henry kings better films starring gregory peck in an unusual formula western. while a general attempt at showing the downside of being a household name when it comes to gunfighting in the old wild west you also get a few very emotional aspects thrown in. you see jimmy ringo as a family man, a friend and most importantly a forgiving man who just can't get away from the trouble he started in his youth

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