Derek: So we’re here talking about Another Man’s Gun with Jon Gries here at the Pretender Lives.

Jon: And Steven Long Mitchell.

SLM: And I’m jumping in because I don’t really know what the story is from Another Man’s Gun so  for those who don’t why don’t you give him a little synopsis so the guys know what you’re talking about.

Jon: Quick synopsis.

Derek: Quick synopsis, ok. Buck, young man, early 1840s, He has lost his father, a couple of years earlier. His mother and 2 little sisters are forced to move into the property of this old rancher, named Gregson with his halfway son, through years of just being treated like…

Jon: Gregson is abusive.

Derek: Gregson is quite abusive, sexually, mentally, physically. It’s a bad situation, especially for the younger girls and young man growing up who has no guidance, father figure. So, years go by, of living in this situation. There’s an opportunity of getting a job to pick up a teacher from New Orleans so Buck does it’s best job of convincing the territory Marshal to get that job. When he gets it he gets on a wagon, rides to New Orleans from north western territory of what is today Nebraska. He rides all the way down, picks up this young teacher and brings her back.

Jon: It’s about a 7 months job.

Derek: A 7 month journey.

Jon: And he wants the money from this job to buy a piece of bottom land, to free his family from the indentured servitude that they have to be under with this man Gregson.

Derek: If he makes it back alive. Which is the goal.

SLM: You know, I’ve never been in front of the camera. You have anybody in mind for the halfway?

Jon: Are you available?

Derek: I’ve met the director. I can talk to him.

SLM: Ok, we’ll see.
