Five Guns to Tombstone is a 1960 American Western film directed by Edward L. Cahn and starring James Brown, John Wilder, Walter Coy, Robert Karnes and Della Sharman.[1]


Young outlaw Billy Wade, determined to reform, is roped into a robbery by rich businessman George Landon then framed for it. Landon springs Billy's brother Matt from prison, on the condition he get Billy to go along with the theft. During a struggle for a gun Matt is accidentally killed, and his teenaged son Ted and others mistakenly believe Billy killed him in cold blood. Billy pretends to help bandit Ike Garvey but ultimately assists in his capture, earning Ted's forgiveness.



The film's plotline and lines duplicate those of an earlier Edward Small production, Gun Belt (1953).[2]
