PostSubject: Pastor was former gunfighter who hung up his guns   Tue Aug 27, 2013 12:43 am

First post to this forum as a new member...

I have been looking for the name of a move I saw as a kid during the 60's. The pastor of a town was a former gunfighter but the town didn't know that. At some point in the movie (to protect the town, I think) he goes into the back of the church, opens a trunk, and gets out his guns. He straps them on and goes out to face the bad guys to protect the town.

Anybody remember that movie?

Before you suggest it, it is not Heaven with a Gun. :-)

Howdy Wbvogel!!

Pard, the film you're referring to is either a spaghetti western with Lee Van Cleef titled God's Gun or another ole 1970's film titled The Gun And The Pulpit with Marjoe Gortner. In the first, Lee Van Cleef plays dual roles as twin brothers. One is a priest, who is killed and this brings his gunfighter brother for revenge. The other is about a gunslinger, who finds the dead body of a preacher with a letter inviting him to become the pastor in some western town and co-stars Slim Pickins.

Thanks Ed!

I lost track of this western forum and didn't notice that you had replied. Unfortunately, the two movies you mentioned came along much too late: God's Gun (1975) and The Gun and the Pulpit (1974). I was born in 1955 and saw the movie I am looking for as a kid. I have already ruled out Heaven with a Gun (1969) and The Peacemaker (1956).

There was another scene I remember from the movie that may help. The pastor never wore a gun but during the town fair the townsfolk talked him into participating in some kind of shooting competition. His old instincts took over and he won the competition. Unfortunately, a stranger passing through town saw him shoot and recognized from his former life.

Ring any bells?

Thanks again,

Brant
