Description by OLDIES.com:

Oscar-winner James Stewart ("It's A Wonderful Life," "Mr. Smith Goes to Washington," "Vertigo") stars in the title role as a jailed bootlegger who invents the famed rifle and gains his freedom. Co-starring Oscar-nominee Jean Hagen ("Singin' in the Rain," "The Asphalt Jungle") and James Arness (TV's "Gunsmoke").

Product Description:

The tougher postwar screen image of James Stewart is given a good workout in the fact-based CARBINE WILLIAMS. In 1952, the world at large knew Marsh Williams as the developer of the US Army's M-1 carbine rifle. The film builds up to this event by detailing Williams' previous existence as a bootlegger and embittered prison inmate, sentenced to 30 years at hard labor for killing a revenue agent. After enduring the rigors of chain-gang life and solitary confinement, Williams (Stewart) gets his mind off his troubles by dreaming up a new type of automatic-gun piston. He is encouraged in this endeavor by prison warden H. T. Peoples (Wendell Corey), previously Williams' bitterest enemy. As Williams continues to develop his innovative weaponry notions, his wife Maggie (Jean Hagen) and Warden Peoples try to overcome penal bureaucracy to win a pardon for Williams. Some TV prints of CARBINE WILLIAMS have been colorized by computer; despite this artistically offensive practice, the strong dramatic and human values of the story still shine.

Carbine Williams Movie Lover: from PAYSON, AZ US -- August, 20, 2012

Jimmie Stewart plays this film as a low key cowboy, until he can't put up with the wrong anymore. Jimmie Stewart is good in anything he sets his hand to. As with many of the actors and actresses who were faced with death in real life, they know what is real and what isn't, and it comes through in their acting.
