The Gunfighter is a 1950 western starring Gregory Peck as main character Jimmie Ringo, who is well-known throughout the west for his sharp shooting and gun fighting skills. Despite his outlaw fame, Jimmie (Gregory Peck) wants to put his past work behind him, but before he can, the hotheaded Eddie (Richard Jaeckel) challenges Jimmie to a draw. Jimmie shoots Eddie, but winds up with Eddie's three brothers on his trail to get revenge. Jimmie escapes the brothers and heads to the town of Cayenne, hoping to visit his ex-wife, Peggy (Helen Westcott), and their young son, who does not know that Jimmie is his father. With the help of his friend, Sheriff Mark Strett (Millard Mitchell) and bar girl Molly (Jean Parker), Jimmie has a place to stay in the saloon and a chance to talk to his estranged wife. Jimmie wants to make amends with Peggy, but he also has to contend with three men out for revenge and another audacious gun fighter named Hunt Bromley (Skip Homeier) out to challenge Jimmie. Jimmie needs one last chance to prove he's the fastest draw before he can finally settle down with his family.moreless
