Die Hand am Colt: Directed by Nathan Juran. With Ronald Reagan, Dorothy Malone, Preston Foster, Alex Nicol. Frame Johnson already cleaned up Tombstone and hopes to settle down near Cottonwood. But a marshal’s work is never done…

“Ronald Reagan quits his job as sheriff of Tombstone (No, heu0026#39;s not Wyatt Earp.) and heads for greener pastures in an attempt to start a new calmer life for himself and his brothers, only to find out that his new home is run with an iron hand, both figuratively and literally, by old foe Preston Foster and his sniveling sons.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eA solid studio B-western, this looks like a million bucks in gorgeous Technicolor and has a script that really knows what buttons to push.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eOne of Reaganu0026#39;s better roles, he strikes all the right notes and is definitely well cast.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThis is also a great showcase for up and coming future stars Russell Johnson (the professor on Gilliganu0026#39;s Island) and an almost unrecognizable Dennis Weaver, who really makes the best out of his role as one of Fosteru0026#39;s sadistic sons.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe final fist-fight between Reagan and Foster is well staged, exciting, and immensely satisfying.”
