In this fact-based film, legendary Texan Jim Bowie (Sterling Hayden) attempts to come to a nonviolent compromise with Mexican President Santa Anna (J. Carrol Naish), but the negotiations soon turn sour. Consuelo de Quesada (Anna Maria Alberghetti), a Mexican girl with close ties to Jim, then warns him that Santa Ana's men are planning to invade. So Jim, Davy Crockett (Arthur Hunnicutt) and a tiny crew of courageous Texans hide out in an abandoned mission, awaiting the violent confrontation.
