From the archive of film historian and author Joel Finler.

A Texan sheriff arrests a powerful rancher's brother under suspicion of murder, and subsequently must fend off the rancher's gang, with the help of a young gunfighter, a disabled man, and the town drunk. One of the most entertaining Westerns ever made, from the standpoint of cinematography, dialogue, story, economy, direction, and acting.

Shot on location in Arizona.

8 x 10 inches. Very Good plus, one with white paper tape at the top and bottom edges, and all three with light edgewear overall.
