The Fastest Gun Alive is a 1956 western directed by Russell Rouse. Infamous gunslinger George Kelby Jr. (Glenn Ford) is living a quiet life in the little town of Cross Creek with his wife Dora (Jeanne Crain). Once the fastest gun alive, George is now mild-mannered shop keeper George Temple. Little respected by the townspeople, George has been avoiding the limelight to avoid the attention of other gunslingers intent on challenging his record. When news breaks that legendary gunman Clint Fallon has been gunned down by Vinnie Harold (Broderick Crawford), the townspeople laugh when George claims to be faster than any gunman alive. To prove his point, George goes home and brings back his pistol. With an amazing show of speed and accuracy, George makes believers out of the townspeople. To protect his safety, however, he makes them pledge not to reveal his identity. Unfortunately, that pledge is soon broken and word leaks out. With outlaw Vinnie Harold on his way to town to claim the title of fastest gun alive, George confesses a secret that puts both his life and the lives of the townspeople at great risk.moreless
