In this action-packed, 1870s western, Maureen O'Hara sparkles as Kate Maxwell, a saloon proprietress caught between her feelings for suave promoter Jim Averell (William Bishop) and the town's appealing, but less flamboyant, sheriff (Alex Nicol). Unknown to Kate, Jim, who has set her up to buy and sell mavericks, is using her saloon as a clearinghouse for rustled beef. There's plenty more about Jim that Kate doesn't know, and by the time she learns the truth, both she and the town are in grave danger. With villainy stalking them at every turn, Kate and the sheriff must battle overwhelming odds to set things right - if they can!The athletic agility and cool beauty associated with Maureen O'Hara are well displayed here. She rides the range with skill, her red hair and Bud Westmore makeup undisturbed, as she expertly fires her Winchester. This is the Old West as its thundering and glorious best!
