Movie Info

Former gunslinger George Temple (Glenn Ford) wants to keep his gun-fighting days a secret as he builds a new life. It seems whenever Temple's prowess with a gun is discovered, he and his wife, Dora (Jeanne Crain), have to skip town before someone challenges him to a duel. After eventually settling in a small town as a quiet shopkeeper, a drunken Temple makes the mistake of showing off his skills. When the criminal Vinnie Harold (Broderick Crawford) catches wind of it, a showdown is imminent.

Audience Reviews for The Fastest Gun Alive

  • Oct 20, 2009
    A decent western starring Glenn Ford as a shopkeeper who has a hidden past being the fastest gun slinger. He keeps this a secret until one day he shows his town how fast he can shoot a gun. This of course draws the attention of other gun slingers looking to prove they are faster. A solid entertaining western. The original story was made for a television show. But they decided to make it into a movie.Worth a watch if you enjoy the old black and white westerns. I liked it.
