The title longarm is retained from the books. That is about all. A deputy U.S. Marshal with an eye for the ladies in the old west. Other than that the movie has absouloutly nothing in common the the Tabor Evans books. The clothes, location, weapons, and Longarm without a Mustache is like the Mona Lisa without a smile. This movie seldom shows up on the air. One veiwing can tell you why.
