George Sherman directs this 1950s Western starring Joel McCrea and Barbara Hale. Farmer Zachary Hallock (McCrea) and his son Joshua (Jimmy Hunt) are settling in to their new farm in the small Western town of Timberline. When approached by cowboy George Hadley (Charles Drake) to join the local group of vigilantes known as the Regulators, Zachary declines, fearing the trouble that a membership to a group like that could cause for his son. When Zachary meets and falls for Sarah Jane (Hale), the older sister of Josh's friend Skaggs (Wesley Morgan), he realises he needs money to be able to marry her. Brothers and members of the Regulators Gus and Jonah Varden (James Arness and Alex Nicol) ask Zachary for his help in robbing a bank and he reluctantly agrees, setting his sights on the money.
