Gunfighter s moon 1995


Trying to put his life as a gunfighter behind him, Brazos Kane (Randolph Scott) goes off to join old pal Bob Tyrell at the Inskip ranch, only to see him gunned down by an unseen shooter.

Brazos takes the body to the Banner ranch, but the ruthless Banner (Griff Barnett) has him arrested for the murder by Yount (Grant Withers), a corrupt deputy. Brazos has the bullet that killed his friend and slips it to Jane Banner (Dorothy Hart), the rancher's daughter.

Inskip (Charley Grapewin) frees him before Brazos can be unjustly tried and hanged. Brazos makes the mistake of trusting Bess (Barbara Britton), sister of Jane, but she is in love with ranch foreman Bard Macky (Bruce Cabot), the man who killed Tyrell.

Brazos refuses to strap on his guns, but Yount (Grant Withers) and hired gun Orcutt (Forrest Tucker) try to ambush him or run him off. Inskip is murdered in cold blood and so is young cowhand Johnny O'Neil (John Miles), the last straw. Brazos arms himself and goes after the bad guys, wounding Yount several times to make him talk, then calling out Orcutt and Bard for a final showdown, with Jane's help.
