- Synopsis / Plot
- In Nevada in 1885, two worn out cowboys, Gil (Henry Fonda) and Art (Harry Morgan), ride into Darby’s Saloon and Hotel looking for a drink. Shortly after their arrival, they learn that Mr. Kinkaid, a local resident, has been murdered and his cattle have been stolen. A mob soon forms to find and hang the murderers and rustlers. Yet local merchant Mr. Davies (Harry Davenport), Judge Tyler (Matt Briggs), Reverend Sparks (Leigh Whipper), and, to an extent, Gil and Art encourage them to wait until the Sheriff returns in order to bring the guilty parties back to justice. Despite their pleas, they champion the “quick justice” cause and lead the posse out of town.
