Storyline

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 Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

There's water in them thar hills...

...and it is treasured.

Cattle ranchers "Chalk" Reynolds (Barton MacLane) and Walt Payne (Charles Fredericks)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 (Lee Van Cleef) and Payne's hired gun is Jack Voyle (Gordon Jones), and while both are described as ruthless killers, the odds are high that Van Cleef could out-ruthless Jones six ways from Sunday.

And into the valley rides Ross Haney (Zachary Scott)who, being brighter than the warring-ranchers, has just bought the water rights to the range, a little 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 (Rick Vallin) and his sister Sherry (Carole Mathews.) But, no big problem, as Sherry falls in love with Haney the minute she sees him, and is by his side when he is engaged in a gun-roaring showdown with all the other factions.

B-Western old-timer Raymond Hatton is on hand as Haney's partner, and former Warners' and Universal western star Dick Foran plays the crooked foreman of the Double-V.

There were worse ones made before...and a heck of a lot worse ones since, up to and including now.
