Son of a Gunfighter (1965) Poster

Young Johnny is a good man to have around if you're facing the business end of a gun or turning back a swarm of banditos overrunning a ranchers spread.

| A Western loaded with action and a little hint of comedy
I had watched the trailer for this movie, and thought it might be a good movie - and it is, I'd set my time-recorder to tape it during the night. And should tell you that this is the first western film I had ever review.

The film starts when a local sheriff and his men are on the trail of an outlaw known as Ketchum, who had bust a few coharts out of prison. Soon they met up with a 19-year-old (I think) lad name Johnny - just Johnny, who is after Ketchum for a personal reason. Then suddenly, they were ambushed by Ketchum's men, and soon after the skirmish, Johnny is on Ketchum's trail.

And then Johnny came across some Mexican cattle ranchers, that were under attack by banditos! Johnny came to their aid and receive thanks from the ranch owner Pedro Fortuna; but Johnny was soon shot in the arm by one of Ketchum's men (I think). Fortuna and his men took Johnny back to their hacienda to be treated by the residents - including Fortuna's daughter Pilar. That's all I could tell you folks, you will have to see the film for yourself how it ends.

Overall, this is one of my favorite western movies, loaded with action and a little hint of comedy.
