I feel like this is Fuller's best movie. Visually, I don't think there's anything that rivals 40 Guns and it's more complex than his other work. It's about as surreal as a western can be without being self conscious (and obnoxious) like something like El Topo.

For people who love cult, B and genre movies, Forty Guns is like the perfect movie.

Fuller's Underworld USA (1960) is also very stylish.

40 Guns is indeed very unusual for a 50s genre film.

I was really hoping for a R1 release. I hope that it's region free but I doubt it.

Doubtful. Time to go "region free", friend-o.

You're right, no argument there.

I can remember having a laugh with others about the risqué dialogue in this between Barbara Stanwyck and Barry Sullivan. I like this one and it wasn't until I saw this that I found out that Barbara Stanwyck could really ride a horse and could do all her own stunts. She was a very talented lady.

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

I saw this a long time ago didn't like is as much as you, Liked Sullivan better than Stanwyck about 6/10. Reminded me of another Western, I think it was a TV Western Series whose theme song was "Twenty-Six Guns", don't know if that was the title of the show though.

AlamoScout210 always check the American or Spaghetti, Euro Western lists incase they already have an entry, thanks I've added your post to the end of the original one above.

Apparently at The Alamo all the good scouts were killed.
