Barbara Stanwyck Trailer of the Day: Forty Guns


“Sam Fuller’s cracked Arizona gunslinger epic pits new-in-town pacifist marshal Griff Bonnell (Barry Sullivan) and his two younger brothers against oppressive rancher Jessica Drummond (Stanwyck) and her posse of 40 (!) hired guns for control of the county. Naturally, Griff and Jessica fall head over heels, much to the chagrin and confusion of the good and bad guys. The idea of packing all 40 gauchos into one scope frame was surely a visual gag too great for Fuller to pass over. It’s one of the wildest and most grandly weird westerns in cinema history.”—Museum of the Moving Image (79 mins.)

Introduced by Dan Callahan on Saturday evening.
