A cattle-vs.-sheepman feud loses Connie Dickason her fiance, but gains her his ranch, which she determines to run alone in opposition to Frank Ivey, "boss" of the valley, whom her father Ben wanted her to marry. She hires recovering alcoholic Dave Nash as foreman and a crew of Ivey's enemies. Ivey fights back with violence and destruction, but Dave is determined to counter him legally... a feeling not shared by his associates. Connie's boast that, as a woman, she doesn't need guns proves justified, but plenty of gunplay results. Written by

Her obsession brought death to the men around her.
Veronica Lake is Connie, a woman who has seen all her life her weak father being dominated by Frank Ivey (Preston Foster). When the man she loves, Walt Shipley cannot stand up to Ivey , she goes on a war against both Ivey and her father. She gets Joel McCrea to be the ramrod and McCrea in turn gets Don De Fore and his friends to help. The problem with Connie is that she is so hurt and scarred by the domineering Ivey that she becomes obsessed in winning this war no matter what. It is a shame that the character of Connie could be not more elaborated, but that would have meant a much longer film. Lake is great as Connie, she is the star of the film. A very good western, a bit hard to follow at the beginning.
