Gordon D. Shirreffs (1914 — 1996) was a U.S. author, known mostly for writing Western and juvenile novels. He also wrote a teleplay. Two of his novels, Judas Gun and Rio Bravo, were made into movies (I Live for Your Death (1968) and Oregon Passage (1957), respectively). One of his short stories ("Silent Beckoning") became the movie The Lonesome Trail (1955). His novel "Last Train From Gunhill" was made into a film starring Kirk Douglas and Anthony Quinn and released in 1959. Strangely, however, Les Crutchfield, who wrote a great deal for Gunsmoke, is cited as the author for the story and Shirreffs name is not given although all of the character names and plot follows those in the novel.
