Notorious gunman and criminal Quirt Evans barely escaped his last encounter with his life, and collapses from his wounds and exhaustion at the farm of the peace-loving and compassionate Worth family.  The family takes pity on the man and, against the advice of the local townspeople, nurse him back to health.  Proving that good things can happen to bad men, Quaker girl Penelope Worth nurses the disreputable Quirt Evans back to health. Quirt eventually finds himself having to choose between his world or the world in which Penelope lives.  

Quirt's business rivals come to town looking for him, but the Worths, specifically their beautiful daughter Penny, persuade Quirt to avoid going after them.  Quirt helps the family in dealing with a local rancher, and Quirt begins to get a sense of accomplishment for living on the right side of the law again.  Can this wholesome family redeem the criminal nature of Quirt?  What happens when his old life collides with his new one?  Find out!

Notes:

Angel and the Badman was the first film produced by John Wayne.


John Wayne would later star in movies named after characters in Angel and the Badman -- Hondo and McLintock!    


John Wayne recorded a 30-minute radio adaption of Angel and the Badman for the Hedda Hopper show in 1947.


The doctor treating Quirt mentions Never Never Land, a reference to Peter Pan.  However, the play was produced in London for the first time in 1904, and the novel did not get published until 1911.
At the beginning of Angel and the Badman, some crooks offer Quirt a bag supposedly containing $5,000 worth of gold.  For the bag to contain the amount in question, it would have had to contain 187.5 pounds of gold at the prices of the time.
