It's illegitimacy that casts the long shadow here, turning Audie Murphy's cowpoke into an embittered, hard-drinking, gambling drifter. Then he inherits the estate of a wealthy rancher who may have been his father, whereupon he becomes an intolerant trail boss during an arduous cattle drive. The script sorts him out in due course, but leaves some irritating loose ends. Terry Moore is the girl, while John Dehner has a supporting role.


A hard-bitten outlaw inherits a ranch and renounces his violent past in a bid to go straight. Determined to prove his worth, he leads a cattle drive, during which he becomes known as a hard taskmaster. Western, starring Audie Murphy, Terry Moore, John Dehner and James Best.
