Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Gun Battle at Monterey begins where most other westerns would end: with outlaw Turner (Sterling Hayden) double-crossed and shot in the back by his partner Beno (Ted de Corsia). Recovering from his wound, Turner spends the rest of the picture trying to catch up with the duplicitious Reno, so as to exact revenge and claim his share from a bank holdup. Romantic complications spring up from time to time thanks to Maria (Pamela Duncan), the Mexican gal who nursed Turner back to health, and Cleo (Mary Beth Hughes), a sexy dealer in the Monterey casino. Sterling Hayden is at his most taciturn and Ted DeCorsia at his most scurrilous in Gun Battle at Monterey. Their respective fans expected no less.
