Johnny Reno is a 1966 American Western film directed by R.G. Springsteen and starring Dana Andrews, Jane Russell, and Lon Chaney Jr. When US Marshal Johnny Reno (Andrews) stumbles upon two men on the lam from angry Native Americans while riding in the American West, they attempt to kill him, fearing jail time. In defending himself, Reno kills one of the men and takes the other to a jail in the town of Stone Junction. The town's sheriff, Hodges (Chaney), agrees that the man should be tried and executed in their town, but Reno believes he should be extradited to Kansas City. Fearing that the Native Americans will attack Stone Junction, the townsfolk plead for the chance to kill the man. Eventually Reno discovers that the townsfolk are actually to blame for the deaths of the Native Americans and that they have considered lynching Reno themselves. With death imminent, Reno must convince Hodges of the town's insanity and face the angry mob at his doorstep.moreless
