A young doctor survives tragedy in Oklahoma Territory.
A doctor's wife dies during childbirth on a trip to a new life in the west. The doctor(Joel McCrea) decides to make a home for his young daughter in the middle of Oklahoma Territory. A pretty young Indian girl(Gloria Talbot)moves in to help take care of the child. Of course, the square shooting doctor is forced to defend her honor.
A nice, wholesome cowboy drama set in 1870's Oklahoma Territory. A greedy rancher wants to claim oil discovered on an Indian's land. Interesting and easy to watch. Talbot, a familiar face in TV westerns, is equally attractive on the big screen. Barbara Hale plays the doctor's love interest. And Brad Dexter is the villain.
