A crusading reporter plans his own arrest and conviction for first degree murder, trying to show that the death sentence should be outlawed when based on circumstantial evidence alone, but his plan goes awry.
The wife of marshal Matt Morgan is raped and murdered. The killers leave behind a distinctive saddle, that Morgan recognises as belonging to his old friend Craig Belden, now cattle baron in the town of Gun Hill. Belden is sympathetic, until it transpires that one of the murderers is his own son Rick, whom he refuses to hand over. Morgan is determined to capture Rick and take him away by the 9.00 train; but he is trapped in the town alone, with Belden and all his men now looking to kill him. Written by

Tense, gripping western where a marshall (Douglas) tries to arrest the killer of his Indian Wife. One problem: this killer is the son of a very powerful man (Quinn) who happens to be a very old time friend of the sheriff. Compelling screenplay gets the attencion of the watchers all along. A little predictable, maybe, but even though a fine example of the golden years of American western. I give this a 7 (seven).
