Six men think they saw Eddie “The Kid” Campbell (Robert Vaughn) shoot down Marshal Cain in cold blood. But only respected lawman Ben Cutler (Fred MacMurray) would swear to it in court. For Ben was determined to see The Kid hang for the crime. But was it because Campbell was a murderer or because Cutler’s daughter (Joan Blackman) was The Kid’s sweetheart, and no father would ever let his little girl marry an outlaw? Sentenced to the gallows, Campbell’s sensitive demeanor soon convinces everyone that he’s been framed. Everyone, that is, except Ben Cutler. For only Ben knows whether The Kid’s truly guilty or not, and justice will be done, even if he has to take the law into his own hands.

This is a pretty poor image. It is very soft, faded, there is a black border around the total image not maximizing the horizontal resolution. It has the now standard Columbia trailers and 12 chapters. Nothing really put into this - it is progressive, but I think it is one of the worst of the new crop of Columbia westerns. Revisiting the film, I was quite impressed with MacMurray and the one dimensional storyline. This is a good old-fashioned western. out of Gary W. Tooze
