Plot Summary

Outlaw Zeb Bascomb (Wallace Beery) flees from federal agents with his partner, Bart Yancy (J. Carrol Naish). After Bart kills a Mormon missionary, the men join the Mormon caravan, pretending to be converts. Dismayed at being put to hard work, they nevertheless maintain their cover, and Zeb befriends 9-year-old Emmy (Margaret O'Brien).
