  • Trivia

    • As a professional gunfighter who takes over the town that has hired him to do a job of murder, Gilbert Roland did what little anyone could to make "Invitation to a Gunfight" credible and made it fun to watch. Roland, plays a heavy with a broad-shouldered, slim-hipped swaggerer that oozes assurance with weapons and women, a model of nonchalant menace and graceful arrogance. When he was finally shot down, Roland fell with flair, demonstrated with a striking crooked sprawl that even playing a dead man he looks better than a lot of TV actors do alive.
