Starring: Dale Robertson, Anne Baxter, Cameron Mitchell, Miriam Hopkins, Craig Hill, Barbara Bates, William H. Lynn and Dick Rich. Based on the 1968 story “The Outcasts of Poker Flat” by Bret Harte, written by Edmund H. North. Directed by Joseph M. Newman.

Ryker (Cameron Mitchell), a murderous western outlaw, leaves death and destruction behind after a robbery in Poker Flat and leaves the loot with his wife, Cal (Anne Baxter), before riding off. A while later, the shaken town decides to banish all undesirables. They include gambler John Oakhurst (Dale Robertson), saloon keeper (William H Lynn) and madam The Duchess (Miriam Hopkins) and the town drunk, Jake (Dick Rich), as well as Cal, who had been spotted with Ryker, even though no one knows they are husband and wife.

The others follow Oakhurst, not knowing what else to do. They come across young Tom Dakin (Craig Hill) and pregnant sweetheart Piney (Barbara Bates), who were headed for Poker Flat to be wed. In a snowstorm, John leads them to a remote cabin. They have no horses, so Tom takes off for Poker Flat on foot to get help, given $500 of the stolen money by Cal in case he needs to pay someone to form a rescue party.
