About Across The Sierras
Bill Elliott plays Wild Bill Hickok, who rescues a friend from hanging and tries to encourage his wayward friend - who turns out to be not so innocent after all - to settle down and take up ranching. Bill has decided the quiet life is for him, after falling for a pretty young Anne (Luana Walters), who wants him to hang up his guns. Of course, Hickok's too good a gunslinger to go unchallenged for long, and soon he faces a decision about which moral code he will live by — his own or his girl's pacifist ideal. Playing Bill's goofy xylophone-playing sidekick, Cannonball, is Dub Taylor, just years after his film debut in Frank Capra's You Can't Take it With You. Newly remastered.
