The Fastest Gun Alive – 1956 Glenn Ford

Another Box Office hit – at this time Glenn Ford had a run of Westerns that were VERY good indeed

Directed by Russell Rouse
Starring Glenn Ford, Jeanne Crain, Broderick Crawford, Russ Tamblyn, Allyn Joslyn, Leif Erickson, John Dehner, Noah Beery Jr., J. M. Kerrigan, Rhys Williams, Virginia Gregg, Chubby Johnson, John Doucette, Paul Birch, Glenn Strange, Kermit Maynard, Dub Taylor, John Dierkes

Glenn Ford made so many terrific Westerns around this time — Jubal (1956), 3:10 To Yuma (1957), Cowboy (1958), The Sheepman 1958 etc.

Glenn Ford was perfect for this role as he played the part of a reluctant gunfighter but was uneasy that he was saddled with the fact he was fast with a gun. That in itself makes for a good Western and this one hits the bullseye

It’s a really terrific with and George Folsey’s cinematography outstanding. I just wish that it had been in colour and wonder now – has it been colorised ?

The answer is YES – that means that I just have to get it as soon as I can

The original Trailer ABOVE is nothing like as exciting as it should be – I thInk that MGM could have made a much better job than this.

Now Colourised
