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

For the sequences showing the train in Gun Hill, Paramount installed 600 feet of track snaking in and around their western street located at their Hollywood studio. At one point the steam engine traveled right under the window of Paramount chief executive Y. Frank Freeman who protested so much about the resulting noise that the tracks had to be moved. See more »

You're leavin' on the next train. I own the sheriff! I own this town! I own every man in it! You're leavin' on the next train, Matt!
Marshal Matt Morgan:
All right, Craig. The last train leaves at 9:00. I'll be on it... but there'll be two men with me, and one of them'll have a cut on his cheek.

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).
