Mystery Science Theater 3000: Gunslinger
In this episode, the MST3K crew soundly mocks "Gunslinger" (1956). Set in 1878, the Roger Corman Western opens with the death of Scott Hood, the marshal of a small town overrun by assassins. The position temporarily falls onto his widow, Rose, who shows her grit when she recognizes one of her husband's killers at the funeral and shoots him good and dead. She needs all the grit she's got as she's determined to battle Erica, a local businesswoman who's taken out a hit on the lawwoman.
MST3K jolted new life into old movies with its wraparound low-budget production of the adventures of Joel Robinson and his robots, Crow, Tom Servo and Gypsy who are trapped on a space station and subjected to watching bad movies by an evil scientist.
