Sheriff Carl Brandon must uphold the law and prevent a lynching when his best friend is accused of murder and immorality by the townsfolk.

Forrest Tucker stars in this movie I just happened to catch for the first time a few months ago on the Starz Western channel and I took to it like a flea to a dog. Forrest has had many good roles in many great westerns, but here he really stands out as the feature headliner as a sheriff whose easy going manner belies his handiness with a gun. Forrest is surrounded by a well recognizable supporting cast - Mara Corday, Jim Davis, Lee Van Cleef & Hank Worden.

In a lot of ways The Quiet Gun reminds of High Noon.  Maybe not in the same class but it's just as entertaining with a terrific ending.

This movie is highly recommendable especially for Forrest Tucker fans. 8/10
