Synopsis:
Jessica Drummond (Barbara Stanwyck) is a despotic landowner who, with a posse of hired guns, has made herself the law of Cochise County, Arizona. However, Griff Bonnell (Barry Sullivan), a one-time gunslinger turned United States Marshall arrives to restore democratic law and order and soon all roads lead to a violent stand off. Exploring the sexual attraction between Drummond and Bonnell, Fuller (Shock Corridor) takes a characteristically singular approach to the genre, giving it a thrillingly personal and uncompromising vision. Handsomely shot and with knockout performances from Stanwck and Sullivan, this is an essential viewing experience ripe for rediscovery.

No bullets - Forty Guns review by CW

Spoiler Alert

Oh too bad. I thought this was going to be a “fun” western with Barbara Stanwyck as the high mucky muck, fastest rider, best shot, biggest land owner, head of a gang, fearless, strong woman. Not at all believable. Actors mostly sleep walking through their roles. I got bored and started watching on fast forward. Would stop when it looked interesting, but it wasn’t. Watched the end and was disappointed that she has now lost everything but yawn, that is okay, because now she is in love and as the stupid ballad in movie says...she is just a woman. Oh puhleeese. Give this a miss.
