When a small towns sheriff is murdered inexperienced deputy Ben Owens (Anthony Perkins) steps in as a temporary replacement. Idealistic and eager to succeed Owens enlists the services of ex-lawman turned bounty hunter Morg Hickman (Henry Ford) to help him grow into his new role. The cynical world-weary Hickman forges a bond with the younger man as he confronts his own lost idealism and falls in love with a widow (Betsy Palmer) who shares his outcast status. A leisurely but engaging character-driven Western.
