Circa 1900, runaway boy Nugget arrives in an Oklahoma boom town to find his brother...who's a dealer in the casino section of a palatial bawdy house, and lover of the madam, Tacey Cromwell. Together, Nugget, Clint, and Tacey seek respectability in a Colorado mining town. Clint finds work at the town's new bank, while Tacey adopts another orphan, Seely. But Clint is pursued by banker's daughter Judith Watrous, who's seemingly sweet but takes ruthless steps to eliminate competition. Result for Tacey: heartbreak, renunciation, and tears a-plenty.

Having watched Anne Baxter in 'The Ten Commandments' I wanted to learn more about her track record leading up to 1956 by watching this film. Don't bother. The film fails to provide any interesting characters or an engaging storyline. You could say that it is a bad script, but there is a line where Anne Baxter says: 'The most important thing for a woman is to feel needed.' I'm not even sure if Rock Hudson succeeded in making her feel needed in the film as his character was unsympathetic. The film comes nowhere the quality of 'The Razor's Edge' where Baxter earned her Oscar by playing a sympathetic character. This is a poorly written script which does not make full use of the talents of Baxter and Hudson.
