"Let`s never forget that to remain free we must always be strong. "

- Glenn Ford

In The Fastest Gun Alive Ford plays a reluctant gunfighter (a theme that occurs in several of Ford's Western roles) who is reluctantly forced into taking up arms against the badguys. We may well be seeing Ford's personal philosophy at play here, whereby he expresses the need for a vigilant defence in our troubled world.
