Red Sundown (1956)
Directed by Jack Arnold
Stars Rory Calhoun, Dean Jagger, Robert Middleton

This is no standard meat & potato horse drama thanks to Rory Calhoun’s turn as a cool as ice, tough-talking gunslinger turned deputy’s sheriff.

After making a promise to a dying friend Calhoun turns a new leaf and hires on with a with a small horse town sheriff (Dean Jagger) and quickly gets himself in the middle of a turf war between local farmers and a cattle baron (Robert Middleton). Calhoun finds romance with the sheriff’s daughter played by the easy on the eyes Martha Hyer. He also finds trouble when he is forced to face off against a hired gun played by Grant Williams in a role that would have better suited for Dan Duryea.

Watch out for a small part at the beginning with the interminable Leo Gordon and a catchy opening song. 7/10
