Synopsis/Details: 

Herb is The Smoking Gun, a quick draw expert, who trains his hand-eye co-ordination by shooting cigarettes. He is also a
heavy smoker. He comes into an almost deserted town and takes a room at the hotel, where the cook, Molly, doubles up as
the town's one and only prostitute. Herb forms a relationship with her.

People in the town have to double up occupations, because the population is so low. The Mayor is also the town undertaker.
The sheriff is also the monumental mason. The clock-maker is also the photographer and the blacksmith is also the grave-digger.

Herb discovers that twenty years ago, Jake Miller went insane and shot dead about a hundred inhabitants in a rampage.
Herb and the Mayor decide to get Metcalf, a mystic magician, to resurrect Jake, so that Herb can take him on in a quick-
draw contest.

That is just the start to the weirdest Western ever.

The Writer: Peter Gartner

I wrote a few screenplays a while back, but now I have a place to submit them. At the moment I am painting in watermixable oils and have a gallery at FineArtAmerica. I am concentrating on art now, but if there is some interest in my screenplays, I could submit more. I start with "The Lightship". I have now posted some more. I want to create original scenarios with surprises for the audience. I do not want my scripts to be predictable. The unusual is always best. A script should be a journey. You don't know the destination, but you will enjoy the journey getting there. I like to explore the psychology of my characters, to give the story more depth. Also, there is now a link to my paintings... Go to bio
