The Stranger Wore a Gun Details


[[Performer~P206639~Randolph Scott~randolphscott]] makes his 3-D debut in the stereoscopic western Stranger Wore a Gun. This time, [[Performer~P239568~Scott~scott]] plays Jeff Travis, a former spy for Quantrill's Raiders. When he heads to Arizona to start life anew, Travis finds that his reputation has preceded him: crooked Jules Mourret ([[Performer~P44328~George Macready~georgemacready]]) hires him to monitor a series of gold shipments, in preparation for a major robbery. Eventually, Travis falls in love with Shelby Conroy ([[Performer~P75384~Joan Weldon~joanweldon]]), daughter of freight-line operator Jason Conroy ([[Performer~P74948~Pierre Watkin~pierrewatkin]]), and decides to turn honest. That won't be easy: in addition to the surly Mourret, Travis must deal with such formidable movie heavies as [[Performer~P4948~Alfonso Bedoya~alfonsobedoya]], [[Performer~P46149~Lee Marvin~leemarvin]] and [[Performer~P7448~Ernest Borgnine~ernestborgnine]]. Also on hand is [[Performer~P71758~Claire Trevor~clairetrevor]], in a soft-pedalled variation of her role in [[Performer~P208413~John Ford~johnford]]'s [[Feature~V46400~Stagecoach~stagecoach]]. Stranger Wore a Gun was directed by [[Performer~P87228~Andre DeToth~andrédetoth]], whose previous foray into 3D had been the box-office smash [[Feature~V23367~House of Wax~houseofwax]]. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
