When his father's ranch faces foreclosure, cowboy Ross McEwen (Joel McCrea) sets out to rob a bank. Leaving an IOU after committing the crime, McEwen makes a successful escape via train, though a rattlesnake bites him in the process. Fortunately for McEwen, nurse Fay Hollister (Frances Dee) is on board to save his life. However, McEwen is far from free and clear, since Sheriff Pat Garrett (Charles Bickford) is hot on his trail. With a reward on his head, McEwen must be careful whom he trusts.
The strangest desperado the west has ever known!
“The characters are warmly portrayed, with emphasis on the cowboy's basic honesty and determination to repay stolen money.” - The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops
“Joel McCrea, a vaquero who is comfortable in the saddle, gives a restrained and effective portrayal as the harried McEwen who is brought to Justice by reason rather than by gunfire.” The New York Times
