An embittered Confederate Civil War veteran's (John Ireland) resolve to never use a gun again is put to the test when he encounters a Missouri rancher (Lon Chaney, Jr.) attempting to force neighbors off their properties so that he can take possession of the land rather than see it sold to make way for a railroad. Finding local law enforcement corrupt, the pacifist soldier soon runs out of options. Dorothy Malone, Lawrence Tierney co-star. 67 min. Standard; Soundtrack: English.
