The Silent Gun refers to the weapon no longer toted by Westerner Lloyd Bridges. Once a notorious gunfighter, Bridges has vowed never to shoot again after nearly killing a little girl. Thus, when faced with evil town boss Pernell Roberts, Bridges must rely on his wits to come out on top. This made-for-TV western compromises its potential with dull dialogue sequences and uninspired direction. The Silent Gun was based on a concept by Batman creator Bob Kane.
