Terror In A Texas Town (1958)
Sterling Hayden (Dr. Strangelove) turns in "a brilliant performance" (The Hollywood Reporter) as a peace-loving Swedish seaman who's forced to take on an entire frontier town in this compelling and startlingly imaginative western.
When George Hansen (Hayden) arrives in Prairies City, Texas, to help manage his family's fledgling farm, he finds that his father has been mysteriously murdered, and no one in town-not even the sheriff-plans to do anything about it! Determined to track down the killer himself, Hansen learns that a ruthless oil prospector and his vicious group of hired guns have been forcing immigrant farmers to sell their mineral-rich land-or pay for it with their lives. Despite crooked lawmen, brutal ambushes and terrorized townsfolk, Hansen tracks down his father's killer and faces off against the enemy in a remarkable showdown, reminiscent of High Noon, that's one of the most original and dramatic action sequences ever filmed.
