Scott plays Owen Marrit, a small time rancher who is quiet and to himself until he runs across his neighbor Will Isham, played by Alexander Knox.
Isham wants to own every bit of land around him and that means Merrit's as well. Merrit doesn't give in and this leads to two of his men being killed. One in a cattle stampede and the other is shot. This sends Merrit into action.
It seems Isham is willing to start a range war over his jealousy of Merritt. There is plenty of action and adventure in this solid western.
The supporting cast includes Joan Leslie, Ellen Drew, Richard Rober, John Russell, Alfonso Bedoya, Richard Crane and Cameron Mitchell. With a cast like this you know it is going to be a good movie.
Andre De Toth directed this fine example of a western and it's one I can easily recommend to any western fan.
