In this western, a lawman tries to mediate between irate farmers and angry ranchers who are trying to decide the fate of a captured killer. The killer was hired by the ranchers who want him freed. The farmers, egged on by a schoolteacher, want to see the gunman swing. Meanwhile the real troublemaker, the town banker, votes for the death penalty. Look carefully and see Clint Eastwood as a ranch hand.
