Last Train from Gun Hill (1959) - (Kirk Douglas) Danish one-sheet

Pictured is a 24" x 33" Danish one-sheet designed by Stevenov for the 1959 John Sturges film Last Train from Gun Hill based on a story by Les Crutchfield with screenplay by James Poe and starring Kirk Douglas as Marshall Matt Morgan. Plot summary: As marshall of a western town, Matt Morgan suspects his old friend Craig Belden [Anthony Quinn] of murdering his native American wife Catherine [Ziva Rodann], but the real murderer turns out to be Belden's son Rick [Earl Holliman], and Craig Belden will not release his son to the marshall. Morgan takes a train alone to Gun Hill, where Belden rules as a powerful cattle baron. Despite opposition from almost everyone in town, Morgan arrests Rick and holds him at a hotel, vowing to put him on the last train out of Gun Hill at 9:00 that night. Craig Belden's former lover Linda [Carolyn Jones] agrees to speak to Morgan on Belden's behalf, but her allegiances have changed; she sneaks a shotgun into Morgan's room instead to help him outgun Belden.
