Requiem for a Gunfighter is a 1965 American Western film, the last film directed by Spencer Gordon Bennet, produced by Alex Gordon, and starring Rod Cameron, Stephen McNally, Mike Mazurki, Dick Jones, and Olive Sturgess.

Olive Sturgess recalls that Cameron, who had starred in three syndicated television series between 1954 and 1961, was "making sort of a comeback at this time. He was very gracious; very kind. You can see it in him in the scene when we are having dinner—his look. He was a professional."[1]

Requiem used several older actors, including Tim McCoy. Dick Jones, years earlier the voice of Pinocchio, closed his acting career in the film as the gunfighter, Cliff Fletcher.[2] Mike Mazurki brought humor to the picture. The snake which he placed in the saddlebag of Cameron's horse was artificial but made so real-looking that viewers would not have known the difference.[1]
