cold-blooded gunslinger whom she takes into her home after he is wounded. 

It never was presented as a remake of Angel and the Badman 1974 but it’s very similar.

I loved this movie enough to make a 3 part video of the story, shown below.  I watch my DVD yearly.

SEASON FOUR OF POLDARK
set in the 18th century Cornwall will see Ross (Aidan Turner) putting himself as a political rival to his dastardly enemy George Warleggan (Jack Farthing), and possibly moving to London. Turmoil will rule in his private life as well after his shameless adulteress wife Demelza (Eleanor Tomlinson) has cold-heartedly cheated on him with Hugh Armitage (Josh Whitehouse), a man whose life Ross saved by heroically risking his own which obviously did not mean much to his flimsy wife. She is obviously still torn between her loving husband and a lovesick Hugh, who is set to rival George in the upcoming election but due to his poor health Ross will obviously have to take over his candidacy and chalange George himself. Their friends Dwight and Caroline Enyse (Luke Norris and Gabriella Wilde) contemplate having a child and the love of Ross’ youth Elizabeth (Heida Reed) seeks the same to secure her marriage with his biggest enemy Warleggan who still does not know their son Valentine is not his but Poldark’s. Meanwhile, their ex nanny Morwenna (Ellise Chappell) uses her husband Osborne’s (Christian Brassington) affair with her sister Rowella (Esme Coy) to keep the reverend’s advances at bay! Harry Richardson and Tom  York return as Demelza’s brothers Drake and Sam ready for a lot of new trouble with law. Series four will cover the happenings until the Christmas period of 1799. The fifth season will probably start with a ten year jump.
