Home from the Civil War, young Neal Hammond is happy to return to Texas ranching, but brother Dan wants more. His attempt to enter business is thwarted when carpetbagger Cord Hardin beats and humiliates him in a poker game. So Dan forms a rustling gang and parlays his ill-gotten gains into a land empire. But among the growing opposition to his gang is the new Marshal of Austin...brother Neal.—Rod Crawford

Short Review

Just another of a relative deluge of heavy-handed 'moral' Westerns typical of the 1950s, with a message that was clearly lost on those Boomer children who may have seen it upon release. Fails to build up tension or empathy for its characters, and so largely falls flat. (2/5)
