This is a US 22" x 28" half-sheet poster using art by Reynold Brown to
promote the 1956 Charles F. Haas film Showdown at Abilene based
on the story "Gunshy" by Clarence Upson Young, screenplay by Berne
Giler and starring Jock Mahoney as Jim Trask. Plot summary: Jim Trask
was once sheriff of Abilene before fighting with the Confederacy in
the civil war. When he returns to Abilene he discovers that most of
the people he used to know think he has been killed. He also finds
that most of the farmland around Abiline has been taken over by
ranchers, who are still feuding bitterly with the farmers. His old
friend Dave Mosely [Lyle Bettger] is planning to marry his former
sweetheart Peggy Bigelow [Martha Hyer]. Dave, who has become
prosperous by encouraging the cattle trade and now feels beleaguered
by the angry farmers, persuades him to take back his old job as
sheriff. Trask immediately begins enforcing a local law requiring
that firearms be turned in while in Abilene.
