- Synopsis / Plot
- Aging lawman Steve Judd (Joel McCrea) takes a job transporting gold from the Sierra Nevada mining town of Coarsegold, and hires old pal Gil Westrum (Randolph Scott) not knowing that Westrum and his callow sidekick Heck Longtree (Ron Starr) intend to abscond with the paydirt. On the way they pick up Elsa Knudsen a runaway farm girl hoping to marry Billy Hammond, a miner. But she doesn't realize that Billy is only one of a bunch of uncouth Hammond boys, a near-feral group with no respect for the bonds of marriage.
