"People get changed. Nobody ends like he started."

Lat Evans (Don Murray) is an ambitious lonesome cowboy who is figuring on hanging around for a while in Fort Brock, Montana… He is a good name back home… He is out to make it mean something here… He saves some money and wants to buy a ranch… So he went to the bank to see about making a loan… But Marshal Conrad (Albert Dekker) can't afford to back gamblers… For him, it's too much of a risk… He advises Lat to get himself some security—a piece of land, a deed, something to put up—then they'll talk about a loan…

But Callie (Lee Remick), the dance hall girl, who is doing it to keep him with her, gave him her savings—with the promise to pay it back— to buy the ranch he wants…

Meantime another girl appears, the pretty Joyce (Patricia Owens)… She's the niece of the banker… Tidy, educated, she has been to college and all that… Of course Lat owes his start to Callie but he got to finish by himself… What he wants is a starched wife and a starched home and a starched reputation and Callie is spoiling his chances of getting it…

Murray is fine as the man with a future… He doubts if he goes in there his political chances are finished…

Lee Remick hasn't cared for anybody in such a long time… She's honest enough to say she's not worth risking anything for…

Richard Egan is the man who breaks his word, double-crosses his friends and beats up his woman…

Filmed in CinemaScope and color, this big-scale Western is very entertaining with enough action around…
