Plot Summary
Cattle rancher Trace Jordan (Tab Hunter) discovers the dead body of his brother and seeks out Joe Sutton (Ray Teal), the cattle baron he knows killed him. Jordan kills Sutton in an act of self-defense during a shoot-out, but is also wounded and flees. He attempts to escape as Sutton's henchmen pursue him, and is soon joined by a half-Mexican woman named Maria (Natalie Wood), whose father had also been killed by Sutton. Eventually Sutton's men find them, and a confrontation occurs.
