Gregory Peck is in top form as Johnny Ringo in Henry Koster's brooding psychological Western about a doomed gunslinger who wants to lay the guns down.

Henry King's, and Gregory Peck's, best sagebrusher -- bar none.

Audience Reviews for The Gunfighter

½

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.

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