Description by

Henry Fonda and Anthony Perkins headline The Tin Star, a tough-minded character-driven western nominated for an Oscar for its story and screenplay. Perkins plays Ben Owens, a greenhorn sheriff who hasn't worn his badge long...and who won't live to wear it much longer unless he gets some savvy help. Fonda, bringing to his role the presence and plain speaking that made him an icon of the cinematic West, plays wily bounty hunter Morg Hickman. "A decent man doesn't want to kill," Morg counsels Ben, "But if you're going to shoot, shoot to kill." Morg backs up his words with action. And when the time comes, so will Ben.

Product Description:

When a small town's sheriff is murdered, inexperienced deputy Ben Owens (Anthony Perkins) steps in as a temporary replacement. Idealistic and eager to succeed, Owens enlists the services of ex-lawman turned bounty hunter Morg Hickman (Henry Ford) to help him grow into his new role. The cynical, world-weary Hickman forges a bond with the younger man as he confronts his own lost idealism and falls in love with a widow (Betsy Palmer) who shares his outcast status. A leisurely but engaging character-driven Western.

Plot Synopsis:

Bounty hunter Morg Hickman takes the inexperienced young lawman Ben Owens under his wing and teaches him to maintain control of the town he is sworn to protect. Owens is under pressure from his girl to give up the job, which gets tough when a lynch mob tries to hang the murderers of the well-like town doctor and a local thug, Bogardus, challenges his authority. Hickman, a former sheriff and reluctant mentor, also takes a part-Indian youngster under his protection, whose mother, Nona, takes a romantic interest in Hickman.
