Overview

In his fourth and final Western for Poverty Row company Beaumont Pictures, veteran leading man Conway Tearle played Kirk Allenby, a lawman hired by the Cattlemen's Association to bring in his look-alike, Bob Enright (also Tearle), a renegade rancher. Badly injuring Enright in a gunfight, Allenby promises the wounded man that he will save his sister Roberta (Margaret Morris) from marrying villainous Jeff Bagley (William Gould). Impersonating Enright, Allenby arrives in time to stop the ceremony, and, with the recovered Enright's help, manages to bring Bagley and his gang to justice. In one of the kinkier denouements in B-Western history, Roberta then agrees to marry her brother's savior and look-alike. A Western star at the age of 58, Conway Tearle was a holdover from the early silent era. Despite his advancing years, Tearle did his own stunts and his four Westerns for Beaumont Pictures proved better than expected. The august star retired with the demise of Beaumont Pictures and suffered a fatal heart attack a little over a year later.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Hans J. Wollstein
In one of the kinkier dénouements in B-Western history, the leading lady of Desert Guns, Margaret Morris, blithely agrees to marry her brother's look-alike! Desert Gun was released by Poverty Row producer Mitchell Leichter's Beaumont Pictures and proved the final starring role for fifty-something British actor Conway Tearle, a major name in the silent era. Despite its careworn look, the little Western is actually quite acceptable for its time and place. Tearle makes a surprisingly potent hero, reportedly performing his own fighting and riding stunts. The ordeal perhaps proved too much, however, and Tearle was felled by a fatal heart attack little over a year later.
