Storyline

The ambitious Ann arrives with the stagecoach in Raton Pass to find herself in the midst of a feud between the Challon and the Pozner families. Ann immediately seeks out Marc Challon, a young man from the richest cattle ranch family, who is in love with Lena Casamajor. Seductively Ann works her way into Marc's heart. Marc marries her and Ann is given deed to half the ranch by Marc's father Pierre. When her husband brings home an even richer man (Prentice), who owns a railroad in hopes of getting him to financially back the ranch, Ann convinces Marc to leave the job to her. Instead, Ann seduces Prentice into falling in love with her also and talks him into buying out her husband. He agrees. Suddenly, Ann and Prentice find themselves totally alone as Marc and all the hands have quit the ranch. So Ann sends for the gunslinger Cy Van Cleave, she met in the past. Cy brings in his fellow outlaws and they begin to take over the cattle ranch. Written by Robert

positive response from memory
11 January 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The movie is vague in my mind because I saw it 55yrs ago when it debuted here in Raton, New Mexico. I remember it was exciting; this was for a five year old. The greatest excitement came from the city activities to commemorate the occasion. This included parades, dances and parties. My present day next door neighbor, a high school student at the time, danced with Dorothy Hart---a lifetime event for him.

For the benefit of civic historical programs, I am trying to track down a copy of the movie. We are a small town trying to beat the doldrums that affect many small towns in America at this time. We are trying put together a film festival focused around "The Raton Pass" and the associated history of our area---the Santa Fe Trail. We have been through what seems to be all of the normal sources to find this movie. Can anyone help with a source?
