One of the classic Westerns of its era, Ramrod stars Veronica Lake as Connie Dickason, a headstrong cowgirl who's plans to marry a sheep rancher are thwarted when a powerful local cattle baron, Frank Ivey (Preston Foster), and her own father (Charles Ruggles), force her fiancÃ© to flee town. Refusing to kowtow to these powerful men, Connie inherits her ex-fiancÃ©s land and determines to run the ranch with the help of her new ramrod, reformed alcoholic Dave Nash (Joel McCrea). But Dave's diplomatic attempts to resolve the dispute fall upon deaf ears and a bloody turf... war on the open range ensues. With Ramrod, Andre DeToth (a Hungarian-American director who has earned praise from Tarantino and Scorsese) skilfully creates a dangerous world of greed, lies and murder whilst garnering superb performances from McCrea and Lake, two of the biggest Hollywood stars of the 1940s.

Veronica Lake stars in this Western following the feud between a wilful local girl and the landowner whose advances she spurns. As the daughter of Ben Dickason (Charlie Ruggles), Connie (Lake) is due to inherit some land of her own. Frank Ivey (Preston Foster), a friend of her father, takes a shine to her, but Connie is unimpressed - particularly when Ivey, used to getting his own way, drives her fiancée out of town in a fit of rage. Now armed with her own patch of land, a bitter territorial battle begins between Connie and Ivey, with Connie's foreman Dave Nash (Joel McCrea) at the heart of the struggle. Nash favours a peaceful solution, but with both Connie and Ivey bent on vengeance, things quickly turn violent...
