Winchester 73 1950 James Stewart Action Drama
Stars: James Stewart, Shelley Winters, Dan Duryea
Winchester 73 Story Line. In a marksmanship contest, Lin McAdam wins a prized Winchester rifle, which is immediately stolen by the runner-up, Dutch Henry Brown. This “story of a rifle” then follows McAdams’ pursuit, and the rifle as it changes hands, until a final showdown and shoot-out on a rocky mountain precipice.
The film’s opening prologue states: “This is a story of the Winchester Rifle Model 1873 “The gun that won the West”. To cowman, outlaw, peace officer or soldier, the Winchester ’73 was a treasured possession. An Indian would sell his soul to own one…”.

In 2015, the United States Library of Congress selected the film for preservation in the National Film Registry, finding it “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant“.
As part of a publicity campaign, Universal Pictures sponsored a contest in magazine ads to find some of the rare remaining “One of One Thousand” Model 1873 Winchester rifles. This resulted in many previously unknown original rifles being brought into the spotlight which drew public interest to the field of antique gun collecting. The winner of the contest received a new Winchester Model 1894 rifle, since the Model 1873 was out of production at that time. (Source: Wikipedia)
