Matt Wade escapes from prison and tries to persuade his brother Bill, a reformed gunslinger, to participate in a hold-up. Billy refuses but Matt frames him and he is forced to ride off with the gang. Billy fights with his brother and accidentally kills him, while Matt's teen-aged son, Ted, who thinks his father had been paroled from prison, sees the shooting. Returning to town to explain the true situation, Billy is almost lynched by the townsmen mob who think he was part of the robbery. He escapes and goes back to the gang, pretending to join them but actually looking for evidence to clear himself and turn gang leader, Ike Garvey, over to Marshal Sam Jennings. Only his fiancée Arlene knows of his plan. Written by

Did You Know?
When the gang is on the hillside above the relay station near the end of the movie, there is an approximately 5-6 second shot of the gang looking down at the station, and in the last 2-3 seconds of the clip, the film is running backward. An outlaw on horseback appears at the bottom of the screen moving forward to join the gang, and when the film reverses he clearly backs up. Also, a branch is visible at the left of the screen bending downward in a gust of wind, and when the film reverses and the horse backs up, the branch moves in the opposite direction. See more
They're talkin' about a half million in cash. That kind of money doesn't lie around loose.
No, not often, Billy. Just once in a while, when they run short of cash around here and the bank has a big shipment from the Federal Reserve in San Francisco.
Yeah, I remember those hauls, those Wells Fargo wagons from Benton - twenty shotgun and rifle guards.
No. They only use six guns now - since you retired.
