Kirk Douglas and Anthony Quinn headline this suspenseful 1959 Western classic of revenge and redemption. Directed by John Sturges (Gunfight at the O.K. Corral), one of the greatest filmmakers of the Western genre, the film follows U.S. Marshal Matt Morgan (Douglas) on the trail of his wife’s killer. Adding a dark twist to the tale—the suspect’s father is Morgan’s longtime friend, Craig Beldon (Quinn), a wealthy and powerful cattle baron in the town of Gun Hill who has come to believe that he and his family are above the law. But Morgan is determined to capture the killer and take him away by the 9:00 train, against all odds. Shot on location at Empire Ranch in Sonoita, Arizona! (Dir. John Sturges, 1959, USA, 90 mins., Not Rated)
