Cattle ranchers "Chalk" Reynolds and Walt Payne have driven most of the small ranchers from the government range in the Ruby Hills country, and are fighting between them to get sole control. Reynold's chief gunman is Frank Emmett and Payne's hired gun is Jack Voyle, and both are described as ruthless killers. Into the valley rides Ross Haney who has just bought the water rights to the range, a legal step that Reynolds and Payne over-looked. Haney soon learns that a third faction is also out to control the valley; the Double V Ranch, owned by Robert Vernon and his sister Sherry. The latter falls in love with Haney, and is by his side when he is engaged in a showdown with all the other factions. Written by

Ben should have been back hours ago. I hope he didn't have any trouble filing those papers.

Based on a Louis L'Amour novel this Allied Artists film Treasure Of Ruby Hills finds Zachary Scott playing a very lone hand in a range feud. Scott's after a study of the principal players in this area has staked out a claim to the stream where the water comes from. The two big cattle barons Charles Fredericks and Barton MacLane have put a lot of gunslingers on the payrolls and are doing a lot of promiscuous shooting against each other.
Stoking the feud is saloon owner Dick Foran and yet an owner of another spread Rick Vallin are hoping to control everything when Fredericks and MacLane kill each other off and do conveniently. But now that Scott's dealt himself in, that's something no one figured on.
L'Amour never wrote his western novels for kids and Scott is no Republic cowboy hero. Still he's the best thing that passes for a good guy in this story.
Western fans will definitely like this one.
