Firecreek is a 1968 Western film written by Calvin Clements Sr. and directed by Vincent McEveety that centers on a peaceful and kind-hearted farmer who is forced to become the sheriff of his small Arizona town when a gang of ruthless criminals starts creating chaos and desperation among the locals. Johnny Cobb (James Stewart) runs his farm and enjoys family life with his beloved wife, Henrietta (Jacqeline Scott), who is about to give birth to a child. The quiet atmosphere of the town is suddenly disrupted by Bob Larkin (Henry Fonda) and his merciless gunmen who have no other job than to terrorize the locals and kill the ones who oppose them. Cobb tries to convince Larkin to stop the chaos and leave the town in peace, but ruthless Larkin is not eager to listen to a farmer's advice. When Cobb's only supporter and partner in his endeavor to restore justice, Arthur (Robert Porter), is killed for witnessing one of gang's criminal acts, Cobb decides to abandon his peaceful farmer life for a while and put the guns to work.moreless
