Bad seed Steve Taylor is pulled out of a saloon by his brother Tim after Steve kills cheating poker player Hoyt Parker in self defense. Steve, who's been financing his gambling addiction with money from his fiancée, is convinced by Tim to give himself up for trial. Found guilty without crucial testimony of his innocence by saloon girl Flora Trigby, who has fled to Mexico, the two brothers make their getaway to a secret hideout, where Tim heads out to find Flora. Tim's enthusiasm for protecting his brother lessens when he returns with Flora and learns someone matching Steve's description has held up the stage and killed passenger Nash Prescott, Parker's co-partner and Steve's chief accuser at the trial.

Veteran actor Steve Brodie plays the brother of Tim Holt's character in this movie, a man falsely accused of murder who is defended valiantly by his brother, Tim. This is an ironic casting choice in view of the fact that Brodie played the villain in an earlier Tim Holt Western, Guns of Hate, in 1948 - one year before this movie. And yet, in spite of their blood relationship, Brodie's character in Brothers in the Saddle is just as selfish and impulsive as his bad guy character in the earlier film. See more
