This John Wayne remake tells the story of a notorious gunfighter, Quirt Evans (Lou Diamond Phillips), who is wounded and seeks shelter with a Quaker family. Attracted to the family's beautiful, loving, and widowed daughter Temperance (Deborah Kara Unger), the hard-bitten gunfighter is transformed from a man with a history of violence into a man of peace. Unfortunately, the leader of the outlaws, Laredo (Luke Perry), won't let his past die.
Director Terry Ingram remakes the 1947 John Wayne classic ANGEL AND THE BADMAN with this made-for-TV version that aired on the Hallmark Channel. Lou Diamond Phillips takes on Wayne's iconic role of Quirt Evans, a notorious gunslinger who begins to rethink his violent ways when he falls in love with a peace-loving Quaker widow, Temperance (Deborah Kara Unger), despite being hounded by a ruthless rival, Laredo Stevens (Luke Perry). The Duke's real-life grandson Brendan Wayne turns in a supporting role as Quirt's sidekick, Randy.
