Bullet for a Badman

Bullet for a Badman

R G Springsteen (1964)

A Certificate


Our Score
A rare decent role for Audie Murphy, and the baby-faced war hero rises to the occasion, making one regret that he had so few opportunities to fulfil his potential. This RG Springsteen western has Murphy vying with baddie Darren McGavin for Ruta Lee, as he heads a posse escorting McGavin back to town for justice. Photographed by the great Joe Biroc and with a marvellous supporting cast of familiar faces, this is a pleasure to watch.


A disgraced Texas Ranger is charged with murder and sent to prison, but soon manages to escape and sets out to prove his innocence. Western, starring Audie Murphy, Darren McGavin, Ruta Lee and George Tobias.
