Synopsis

Storyline:
Granted a small plot of land in a lush valley and a start of cattle by the generous landowner and cattle baron, Dennis Deneen, the once-feared gunslinger, Steve Sinclair, has renounced violence, intent on keeping the peace in the community. However, the sudden arrival of Steve’s much younger brother, Tony, and his saloon singer fiancée, Joan Blake, will pave the way for a bitter rivalry between siblings, as the volatile young gunfighter craves to prove his mettle. More and more, Tony’s tricked-out custom six-shooter demands blood. Is Tony destined to be the lord of the rich valley?

User Reviews: The method acting of the fifties has become very outdated, you have the feeling they are overacting. Considering this, it is great to see an actor like John Cassavetes giving such a "method" performance and coming out so well, Tony Sinclair seems like a very true character. Robert Taylor was a familiar face in westerns, but as he got older, he became more physically suited for the role. Here he is at his best. Julie London was more of a singer than an actress, but she is great as Joan, the woman who hangs on to a crazy Tony in a desperate attempt to change her life. The script, by Rod Serling is good, but something is missing. It is too much like a TV movie, it seems too short. With such good actors you expect something more substantial. It is nice to hear Julie singing "Saddle the Wind".
