Storyline

Matt Wade escapes from prison and tries to persuade his brother Bill, a reformed gunslinger, to participate in a hold-up. Billy refuses but Matt frames him and he is forced to ride off with the gang. Billy fights with his brother and accidentally kills him, while Matt's teen-aged son, Ted, who thinks his father had been paroled from prison, sees the shooting. Returning to town to explain the true situation, Billy is almost lynched by the townsmen mob who think he was part of the robbery. He escapes and goes back to the gang, pretending to join them but actually looking for evidence to clear himself and turn gang leader, Ike Garvey, over to Marshal Sam Jennings. Only his fiancée Arlene knows of his plan. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Goofs

In the chase at the end of the movie, after the attack on the station, when Billy Wade is fleeing the relay station with the Wells Fargo wagon and Ike Garvey and his gang are chasing him, twice at the very beginning of the chase scene Billy Wade turns around with drawn gun and fires at his supposed pursuers, with the camera in front of him looking back down the trail behind him, but the camera clearly shows that there is nobody at all behind him that he can even see (much less shoot at). The view shows the entire trail behind him both times, all the way to a bend in the road, with no other horsemen on it. Meanwhile, the film intersperses the clips of Bill Wade frantically driving the wagon and shooting behind him with clips of the gang chasing him and shooting at him supposedly right in front of them.

This movie is an exact remake of 1953's "Gun Belt"
18 September 2010 | by marcmassaroSee all my reviews

I thought that there was something similar when I watched this movie. I was watching the Western Station ,and as I got into the movie,I realized that I had seen the same plot just the week before. After some searching,I realized "Five Guns To Tombstone" was exactly the same as "Gun Belt" that came out in 1953.The plot was exactly the same in each movie.The lead character,Billy,was Billy Ringo in "Gun Belt" and Billy Wade in this movie.George Montgomery and Tab Hunter were uncle and nephew in "Gun Belt" and had the same feelings for each other as the uncle and nephew had in this one. Ike was the bad guy in both and did exactly the same murderous deeds in both movies.The movie ended the same in both movies.Both movies were lousy.The acting was bad in both except "Five Guns To Tombstone" was probably worse only because George Montgomery and Tab Hunter were better actors. Looks like the writers of this movie must have had writers' block and someone said,"Hey.let's remake "Gun Belt".VERY BAD DECISION!!
