Desolation Canyon is a 2006 American made-for-television western film starring Stacy Keach and Patrick Duffy. The film was written by Dan Fitzsimons, directed by David S. Cass Sr. and premiered on Hallmark Channel on July 1, 2006.


After a bank robbery, the responsible gang stops by the home of one of their band's estranged wife to abduct his own young son. The town's old sheriff (Patrick Duffy) calls for the help of a retired gunfighter (Stacy Keach), who is also the abducted boy's grandfather. Hot on the trail of the fugitives, they discover that two bounty hunters are already in pursuit of the gang for crimes committed in Mexico.



Entertainment Weekly's critic gave the film a C+ rating.[1] However, the film achieved some success; it achieved 2.4 HH (household) ratings,[2] and it was the highest-rated ad-supported cable movie of the day, with nearly 1.8 million homes.[3]
