Gone with the West


James Caan stars as Jud McGraw, a cowboy unjustly framed for a crime he didn't commit; he partners up with an ethically wronged Native American woman named Little Moon (Stefanie Powers). In response to the ills they have each suffered, the two set off to wreak vengeance on a small western town.

Gone with the West is a 1975 American film starring James Caan and Stefanie Powers, directed by Bernard Girard.

Plot summary

Jud McGraw gets out of prison and seeks revenge against Mimmo, a man who wronged him. He meets Little Moon, a woman who also has good reason to go looking for justice.
Mimmo pretty much owns the whole town, including the sheriff, whose sister Billie is also Mimmo's woman. A quick-draw gunslinger for hire, Kid Dandy, plays billiards and helps keep Mimmo safe from harm, at least until McGraw gets to town.
