An offbeat Western with fantasy overtones. Hard-bitten gambling boss Adam 'Duke' Byron (Brian Donlevy) rules his frontier community with brawn and bullets. To his dismay, Byron discovers that he has a guardian angel (Robert Cummings), who shows up in the guise of an Eastern tenderfoot. The angel has been sent from Above to save Byron's soul, and to that end encourages the one-time villain to squire a minister's daughter (Jorja Curtwright) rather than his usual dance-hall girls. Byron is also given tips on winning against his enemies without resorting to gunplay. But can the reckless gambler finally redeem himself with Heaven or rescue an angel from a lynch mob?

A highly entertaining and refreshing twist to the venerable Western genre.
