Forty Guns

Forty Guns ★★½ 1957

Typically over-the-top Fuller production filled with melodrama, violence, and lots of sexual innuendo. The Bonnel brothers—Griff (Sullivan), Wes (Barry), and Chico (Dix)—are lawmen out to arrest Brockie (Ericson), the nasty younger brother of tough, whip-cracking Jessica Drummond (Stanwyck). Jessica basically owns and runs everything and everyone around her with the help of her hired guns. Griff falls for this western wildcat, making his job more difficult. A climatic shootout helps the movie live up to its title. 79m/B DVD . Barbara Stanwyck, Barry Sullivan, Gene Barry, Robert Dix, John Ericson, Dean Jagger, Eve Brent; D: Samuel Fuller; W: Samuel Fuller; C: Joseph Biroc; M: Harry Sukman.

Learn more about citation styles

Citation styles gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
