Cert U/95 mins
Directed by Anthony Mann with James Stewart, Shelley Winters with early performances by Rock Hudson and Tony Curtis.
This is the story of the journey of a prized rifle (won in a marksmanship contest) from one ill-fated owner to the next, and a cowboy’s search for a murderous fugitive. Lin McAdam (James Stewart) wins this prized Winchester rifle, which is immediately stolen by the runner-up. Thus begins a battle of wits and nerves, and a pursuit to the death.
Includes a glass of wine, snacks and film notes.
