An American gunslinger kills a Mexican man in California immediately after the Mexican-American war.

The killer is arrested and put on trial for murder with the Hispanic population waiting to learn of American justice.

Sounds like Miami today.

Heavy handed directing. No so good acting, even though Dennis Hopper is the main character.

I never thought he was such a great actor. He prove it here.

If anything, this movie serves to prove even in 1959 the left was churning out propaganda.
