This compact little western has Robert Preston and Robert Sterling portraying two brothers finding themselves on opposite sides of the legal fence. Sterling is the bad guy. Preston's son is caught in the crossfire, menaced by Sterling. The 1950 version should not be confused with the 1960 Warner's film of the same name, which is set on a Australian sheep ranch.
Robert Preston and Robert Sterling star in this B-western as two brothers torn apart by their moral differences. While one brother is a mild-mannered do-gooder by nature, the other is a true criminal. He is so villainous in fact, that he puts his own nephew in danger. Judging each other from opposite sides of the law, the men resolve their differences the only way frontiersmen know how--in a climactic showdown. Solid performances by supporting actors John Barrymore Jr. and Cathy Downs make this tale of the old west well-worth the watch.
