    Man with the Gun

    ★★★

    Gunslinger Clint Tollinger (Robert Mitchum) is searching for his estranged wife (Jan Sterling). He finds her in a small town and, of all things, she's a madam at a saloon, in charge of the dancing girls. But really, that's a lesser problem in this town where an unknown bad man is driving people off their land. Clint is hired and deputized by the milquetoast marshal to clean up the town, but there will be opposition from several fronts.

    ★★★★

    The true story of "Weird Al" Yankovic's rise to fame, told with 100% accuracy for the first time.

The Prime Directive seems to have gone out the window, and the crew of the Enterprise isn't having it.

    Three crooks (Stephen McNally, Lee Marvin and J. Carrol Naish) come to a small town called Bradenville, intent on robbing their bank. To get coordinated, Naish cases the bank, Marvin snoops around town, and McNally finds an Amish farm—run by Mr. Stadt (Ernest Borgnine) and his family—where they'll flee to after the deed is done. But they're not counting on the resourcefulness and bravery of the townsfolk, in particular one Mr. Martin (Victor Mature).
