| Standard Randolph Scott film should have kept Zane Grey's original title...
GUNFIGHTERS is the unoriginal title for Zane Grey's "Twin Sombreros", which, considering the story is about two sisters who are almost twin-like in appearance, would have been a more apt title for this film.

The story is routine as depicted here, with bad guy BRUCE CABOT as the man responsible for a few killings over range rights on property owned by GRIFF BARNETT and his daughters BARBARA BRITTON and DOROTHY HART.

RANDOLPH SCOTT is the man who rides into town at the start without his gunbelt, but by the end of the story he dons it for the final gun duel before tossing it off again and heading west for the happy ending. This is after he's fought a couple of the town bullies, including FORREST TUCKER, and won.

What surprised me was how good the warm tones of Cinecolor looked, while not quite up to the standard of three-strip Technicolor. Looks as though Columbia was aiming to give the film an A-budget look.

For Randolph Scott fans, it's a treat to see him in fine shape--but the script is ordinary and the direction is uninspired. One would never guess the story is from an original penned by Zane Grey.
