Vinnie Holt, a single woman traveling with her toddler niece, becomes stranded at Rawhide, a desert stagecoach stop managed by stationmaster Sam Todd and his assistant Tom Owens. Owens is quickly impressed by Vinnie's independent self-confidence. Jim Zimmerman, a fugitive murderer from Huntsville Prison disguised as a deputy, and three other ruthless escapees take over the station, intent on robbing the next day's gold shipment. After murdering Sam, Zimmerman knows they must keep Tom alive in order to complete their plans. Owens does not correct Zimmmerman's assumption that Vin is his wife, correctly sensing that the misconception might be the key to her survival also. Written by
I'm not a big fan of Susan Hayward, but her sometimes irritating brand of spunkiness really works well in this film, although I think she was at her best in Nicholas Ray's 'The Lusty Men.' Tyrone Power is also makes a surprisingly good Western hero. As noted by previous posters, he's not ultramasculine, but he keeps his head, is resourceful, and saves the day in his own way. Add crazy-eyed Jack Elam as his usually dastardly self, and tense, well-played situations and you have a nifty little western that's worth watching anytime.
