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.
Not as much trouble as we're going to have when we ride into Soledad.

Zachary Scott, the son of a gunslinger, doesn't want to end up like his old man or any of the other unchanged outlaws he spends his days with. So he comes up with a plan to clean up a town in trouble by registering a claim on the valley's only water supply, putting himself in the gun-sights of two rival land barons.
Based on a story by Louis L'Amour, Treasure Of Ruby Hills is one of those great little 1950's, black and white B-westerns that mixes in elements of tough-talking film-noir with the horses, hats, and six-shooters.
A smart script, with lots of twists and turns, definitely makes up for a lack of funds on the part of the producers.
Character actor Zachary Scott, who's usually cast as a heavy, is great in the lead.
There's also a small but juicy role for a young Lee Van Cleef as an ice-cold hired killer (what else?) who shot Scott's partner in the back. The final showdown between these two is short and sweet.
