Entering the 3rd Dimension :: For Men with a Killing Coming to Them! (October, 1953)







After the brutal massacre at Lawrence, Kansas, one of Quantrill’s lead scouts sours on all the killing and flees to the Arizona territories. Alas, old habits are hard to break as he falls in with another bad bunch of stagecoach bandits. But once again, a senseless killing triggers a long dormant conscience, and payback with lead interest has finally come due! Based on John Cunningham’s novel Yankee Gold, this was director Andre de Toth’s 3-D follow up to House of Wax. And this was also only one of about a half-dozen oaters that de Toth made with star Randolph Scott. Now. There were some conflicting reports that The Stranger Wore a Gun was never released in 3-D, but these ads kinda skewer that notion, don’t ya think?
