James Stewart, Rock Hudson, and Shelley Winters light up the screen in this timeless portrayal of the Wild West and the heroes who tamed it. Stewart plays Lin McAdam, a frontiersman who wins a Winchester rifle in a marksmanship contest. When the prize is stolen, he doggedly pursues it as it passes among a motley group of characters—including a crazed highwayman, a corrupt gunrunner, a savage young Indian chief, and even his own dangerous brother—until the final, rousing shoot-out. Also featuring Tony Curtis in one of his first screen performances, Winchester ’73 remains one of the western genre’s most enduring classics.
