Plot Summary

When a bank heist goes wrong, outlaw Yellowleg (Brian Keith) inadvertently kills a 9-year-old boy -- the son of saloon girl Kit Tilden (Maureen O'Hara). Plagued by guilt over the shooting, Yellowleg vows to help her bury the boy beside his father in the now-derelict town of Siringo, Ariz. With criminal cohorts Billy (Steve Cochran) and Turk (Chill Wills), Yellowleg embarks on a dangerous journey into Apache territory to lay the boy in his final resting place.
