Forty Guns (1957)

 

An authoritarian rancher, Barbara Stanwyck, rules an Arizona county with her private posse of hired guns. Stanwyck falls in love with a new marshall (Sullivan) who arrives in town to set things straight. Both have itchy-fingered brothers and when a female gunmaker enters the picture, things go desperately wrong.

 
Director - Samuel Fuller
Stars -  Barbara Stanwyck, Barry Sullivan, Dean Jagger 
 
 
 
Barbara Stanwyck is the big name on this film but it is Barry Sullivan's turn as the the gun-fighting marshal that makes this fun to watch.  Tragic consequences gives this medium percolating drama some depth and it has a killer ending that makes it worth it. 7/10

How can you not include John Ericson in the cast list?
