1940 Best Actor Mr. Smith Goes to Washington nominated
1941 Best Actor The Philadelphia Story won
A peace-loving, part-time sheriff in the small town of Firecreek must take a stand when a gang of vicious outlaws takes over his town.
wonderful under-appreciated western with an incredible actor actor's cast that features Jimmy Stewart, Henry Fonda, Jack Elam, James Best and Gary Lockwood. The female lead, Inger Stevens would mysteriously be found dead shortly after the completion of filming on this film. A must see, with a monster script, performances that are truly ballsy, and a true sleeper in the genre.
