Basehart plays a wounded gunslinger who finds a home to recuperate in at the humble ranch of Taylor, an ex-Confederate officer who has seen enough of bloodshed. He grows fond of Taylor's sister, Granada, and develops a deep respect for the peaceful ways of the man who has given him

shelter. When greedy rancher Nieto hires sadistic Nicol and a bunch of henchman to drive the smaller ranchers, including Taylor, from the valley, Basehart is quick to come to Taylor's aid. He outguns and outfights Nicol and his gang of no-gooders, which forces the cowardly villain to disappear, to

return only to take advantage of his former boss, Nieto. Nicol murders Nieto, then decides to finish off what Nieto had begun. A badly beaten Basehart is rescued from the gun of Nicol by Taylor, who forsakes his nonviolent views one last time to save his friend's life. Shot in Spain, this is an

offbeat western that offers some interesting characterizations but doesn't vary too much from an old western formula. Basehart made THE SAVAGE GUNS in another effort to test his versatility. He has frequently appeared in European films in a career-long fight to escape Hollywood typecasting and its

pitfalls, and in the process has become adept in playing a wide range of roles.
