From 1870 to 1873, Texas suffered under the carpetbag administration of reconstructionist Governor E. J. Davis (the name and the stated conditions was about the last of anything authentic in this film) and his despotic state police commanded in John's City by Captain Jake Thornton. Two young men, Tall Cameron and Ray Novack flee to the Big Bend area to escape persecution. Ray pretends to be Tall's friend but actually hates him because he is madly jealous that Laura Bannerman is to become Tall's wife. They join forces with Sam Garrett, a killer with a price on his head. Ray tries to kill Garret to collect the reward, but Tall saves Garrett's life and Ray flees back to John's City, where he is taken prisoner. Ray kills Thornton and another trooper but Tall is blamed for the crimes. Garrett can clear him, but will he? Written by

Didn't you hear what I said? He's Sam Garrett! He's killed more than twenty men! He'll kill that many more if somebody doesn't stop him. Stopping a man like that isn't just a job for the law. It's a job for every man who wants to live in peace - every man who wants law and order to come back to Texas.
And for every man who wants to save his hide and collect $10,000! Stop making righteous speeches, Ray!
