Over his nearly four-decade career Marty Robbins was one of the most popular and successful American Country and Western singers, his 1959 album Gunfighter Ballads and Trail Songs soaring the charts and ensuring enduring fame. In this one-of-a-kind Western, Marty plays "Marty Robbins", a former confederate soldier turned ridin', fightin', singin', lovin' outlaw: a Robin Hood who holds up stagecoaches so that he can give the money to the poor of the local town. It is not long before Marty runs into a gang of crooks who don't have the same scruples as he does! When Marty cheats the outlaws out of a gold shipment, the bandits pursue him. A final showdown takes place at the town of "El Paso", which gives Marty the opportunity to perform his #1 smash hit of the same name.
