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.
