1 hr. 30 min.
Cattle rancher Sam Brassfield (Robert Taylor) engages in a war of wills with power-hungry Clay Mathews (Robert Middleton), whose allies include the brother of Brassfield's betrothed. In trying to muscle out the competition, Mathews frames Brassfield for damage to another rancher's property, nearly getting both men killed. But instead they join forces and enlist the help of President Chester A. Arthur (Larry Gates), leading to a shift in power and tension that can be settled only with bullets.
