Storyline

In the little town of Dorado, widely known as a town with no crime and no bank to rob, young Polish-born Steve Kovacs is fighting a two-edged sword of prejudice; his foreign birth and also the fact that his brother, Nick Kovacs, is the leader of an outlaw gang known as The Missourians. Marshal Bill Blades and lawyer John X. Finn are on the boy's side but are fighting a losing battle, especially when Nick brings his gang to Dorado away from the robbery and murder charges behind them in Texas, Oklahoma and Missouri. Nick uses threats against Mrs. Novaks, their mother, to force Steve to help him hold up and destroy a wagon train of supplies intended for the building of a new church. Masked, and wearing Steve's easily-recognized plaid shirt, Nick and his henchman Stash robs postmaster Walt of the $10,000 deposited there to pay for the church-building supplies, and the murder of Mayor McDowell by Lucius Valentine are both blamed on Steve.

Quotes

John X. Finn: Slow down a little. This is a good town. You're all are good men. Steve Kovacs is bad; you're going to have to do away with him. Someday, your new church is going to be finished and you can all gather together in there and pray. The fact that you just lynched Steve Kovacs isn't going to bear down on your conscience much, 'cause he took some money that belonged to somebody else and all you took was a man's life.
