Johnny Hawks (Kirk Douglas), a Civil War veteran renowned for his prowess in battling Native American tribes, is hired to escort a group of white settlers. But when lowlife Wes Todd (Walter Matthau) discovers that nearby Sioux are hiding a trove of gold, he becomes obsessed with locating it -- which quickly stirs up trouble with local Sioux warriors.
