Brett Wade, gambler, gunslinger, and classical pianist, is wounded in a gunfight with the Ferris clan; the doctor finds signs of tuberculosis. En route to Colorado for his health, Brett stops in Socorro, New Mexico along with Ferris gunfighter Jimmy Rapp. Sheriff Couthen fears another shootout, but what Brett has in mind is saving waif-with-a-past Rannah Hayes from a life as one of Dick Braden's saloon girls.

The monochrome brown of the outside scenery seen from inside the stagecoach through the windows during the ride does not match the colored external scenery as shown from outside the stagecoach, proving that the studio used old black & white stock footage that was tinted brown to disguise its black & white origins.

Look, Mr. Braden, I don't like the place you run in Socorro. Your cards are marked, your dice are loaded and your whiskey is watered.

Rory Calhoun is a world weary and consumptive gunfighter who just would like to hang up his six shooter, but a whole passel of enemies he's made over the years just won't let him quit. A little bit of Gunfight at the OK Corral and The Gunfighter tossed together.
After a shootout in one town he arrives by stage to Socorro where Sheriff Edgar Buchanan wants to get him out of town before any more blood is spilled on his turf. But Calhoun lingers and lingers, impressed by the beauty of Piper Laurie who he's ridden to town with on the stage.
It's a good B western, directed by a veteran of that genre, George Sherman. Sherman keeps the action going at a good clip and the cast knows their way around a western set.
Dawn at Socorro was probably a B feature that didn't bore too many people who went to see the A picture from Universal it was playing with.
