Former dance hall girl Lorna, masquerading as a lady, meets and marries Confederate ex-officer Colt Saunders, returning to his rich Texas ranch. Everyone there is enchanted with Lorna.

In one scene, Colt Saunders (Charlton Heston) leans against a rustic mantelpiece in his family home. Over the mantelpiece are two portraits, a seated woman and a standing military officer. These paintings were done from photos of Heston's grandparents so they would bear a family resemblance. See more »
Near the end of the movie Anne Baxter is in a wagon that is out of control. It appears to be a dummy on the front seat rather than a stunt person. See more »
This is a thoroughly ordinary western with Charlton Heston heading the cast as a Civil War veteran returning home with his new wife (Anne Baxter) whom he ultimately discovers has had a rather dishonorable past. On top of that he has to deal with carpet baggers and the jealousy of his one-armed younger brother (played by Tom Tryon) who decides he has a lot of old scores he needs to settle. There's not very much to thrill about here, and none of our three principals are very "violent", but it's a treat to watch Baxter and Heston together again after their stint in THE TEN COMMANDMENTS. For what it's worth, Robert Blake is featured in a role as a young Mexican. ** out of ****
