Glenn Ford, Edward G.Robinson and Barbra Stanwyck star in Rudolph Mate's tough and herd-hitting 1955 western. A range war is coming to the valley. Ambitious land baron Lew Wilkinson (Edward G.Robinson) and his hired guns from the Anchor Ranch have been driving other farmers off their land. Now they've gunned down the local sheriff and are loking to own the entire valley. Civil War veteran Captain John Parrish (Glenn Ford) doesn't want any trouble. He'd be happy to sell out to Wilinson and return back east. But when Wilkinson's men kill one of his ranch hands, Parrish... realises he has to stand his ground - and look to his guns. [show more]

An ex-Confederate Army officer, John Parrish (Glenn Ford, 3:10 to Yuma, 1957), plans to sell up to nearby Anchor Ranch and move east with his fiancée, but the low price offered by Anchor's crippled owner, Lee Wilkenson (Edward G. Robinson, Mackenna's Gold), and the outfit's bullyboy tactics make him think again. When one of his ranch hands is murdered, he decides to stay and fight, utilizing hiswar experience. Meanwhile, all is not well at Anchor Ranch where the owner's wife, Martha (BarbaraStanwyck, T.V.'s "The Big Valley), has been carrying on for years with her husband's brother who, in turn, keeps a local Mexican sweetie in town.
Edward G. Robinson plays an unpleasant cattle baron whose wife (Barbara Stanwyck) is carrying on with his brother while he drives small landowners from his valley. Glenn Ford plays the hero of the piece, an ex-Civil War officer who undertakes a guerilla campaign on the disagreeable cattle-man. He sets about his tasks with relish, but the course of action leads, inevitably, to one final confrontation.
