Hired to protect a substantial gold shipment through outlaw country, ex-sheriff Steve Judd (Joel McCrea) turns to old sharpshooter friend Gil Westrum (Randolph Scott) for backup. Unfortunately, Westrum and his young sidekick (Ron Starr) are looking for a fast payday...and the cargo just might be it. Sam Peckinpah’s excellent, elegiac vehicle for his veteran cowboy leads--and Scott’s screen farewell--also stars Edgar Buchanan, Warren Oates, James Drury, and Mariette Hartley (her film debut). 94 min. Widescreen (Enhanced); Soundtracks: English Dolby Digital mono, French Dolby Digital mono; Subtitles: English, French, Spanish; audio commentary; featurette; trailers.
