Gun Fury is a rough-and-tumbleweed tale of a psychotic gunman and the hero determined to stop him. Civil War veteran, Ben Warren (Rock Hudson), no longer has the stomach for bloodshed. Eager to give peaceful means a try, he aims to build a new life out west with his fiancee (Donna Reed, fresh from her Oscar(R)-winning performance for Best Actress in From Here To Eterntiy, 1953). But his non-violence is put to the test when an outlaw ex-Confederate (Phil Carey) and his gang (inclduing, Lee Marvin) kidnap his wife-to-be.
The film was originally shot in 3D, so many scenes were designed to enhance the illusion of depth. Director Raoul Walsh sends fists, rocks, hoofs and a rattlesnake plunging toward the viewer, adding excitement to this compellingly watchable, hard-hitting Western morality tale about a man who can only be pushed so far.
