The Silver Star

1955, Movie, NR, 73 mins

Lyon (who also served as producer) stars as a man elected sheriff of a western town. He doesn't want the job, because he's a pacifist. His defeated opponent (Chaney) hires some killers (including director Bartlett) to take on Lyon. The new sheriff is forced to strap on his gun and take on the trio after Buchanan, a retired marshal, shames him into it. With heavy borrowing from HIGH NOON, THE SILVER STAR never builds the necessary moods or tension that would have made it work. The direction and performances are bland, causing the film to drag until the final credits.
Released: 1955 Rated: NR Length: 73 mins
