Just outside the small town of Pauley, a Native American woman is attacked by two riders on horseback, raped, and killed. Her husband, Matt Morgan (Kirk Douglas), the town marshal, has only two clues to their identity, a fancy saddle with the initials "C.B." that one of the men left behind, and the fact that his wife cut one of the two men deep across the cheek with a buggy whip. Matt traces the saddle to Craig Belden (Anthony Quinn), an old friend and now a wealthy rancher in the town of Gun Hill, but he knows Craig well enough to know that he couldn't have had anything to do with attacking his wife. Matt's arrival with the saddle sets off ugly rumblings in Gun Hill, and when he confronts the Craig, he discovers that it was his son Rick (Earl Holliman) who had his horse and the saddle, and rode out with a cowhand friend of his, Lee (Brian G. Hutton)
Providing the clincher ... the cut that one of the killers has on his face ... so Matt vows to take Rick and Lee back to Pauley to stand trial, while Craig swears he'll do anything it takes to protect his son.
Belden is virtually all the law there is in Gun Hill - Sheriff Bartlett (Walter Sande) won't help Matt serve his arrest warrants on the two men, or even let him use the jail - there's not a working man, a shopkeeper, or even a prostitute in the whole town that will go against the rancher, and Craig's foreman Beero (Brad Dexter) and his men will strong arm anyone who might start feeling brave.Read more ›

Morgan manages to get his man, but there are six hours to pass before the train comes, and he has holed up in a room in a local hotel, with his prisoner, Rick Belden (Earl Holliman) in handcuffs, But can he get him to the station . . . ?Read more ›
