Marking the directorial debut of Roger Corman (The Pit and the Pendulum, A Bucket of Blood), Five Guns West sets the standard for gritty shoot-and-run western adventure! John Lund, Dorothy Malone and Touch Connors star in R. Wright Campbell's rugged tale of five outlaws whose next stop is the gallows - unless they take on a dangerous mission!
Given the choice of death or deadly mission, five convicts agree to hijack a stagecoach carrying a traitor and $30,000 in gold. Braving hostile Comanches, deceit and a rivalry brought on by the presence of a beautiful, cunning woman (Malone), the men deftly set up their ambush. But when their uneasy alliance dissolves, the only thing any of the men can trust is his six-shooter!
