Showdown at Boot Hill is a 1958 B&W Western movie directed by Gene Fowler Jr. and starring Charles Bronson as Deputy Marshal Luke Welsh who comes to Mound City, hunting for outlaw Con Maynor. When Welsh outguns Maynor, he needs a statement identifying the man, but Maynor was well liked in Mound City, and neighter the Judge, nor any of townsmen wants to sign such a statement. Tensions grow as locals begin to speak that they don't want Marshal in their town. Meanwhile Luke makes a love interest in Sally Crane (Fintan Meyler), a quiet and modest girl serving as a maid in the hotel.

The following weapons were used in the film Showdown at Boot Hill:
