Storyline

It's the last day on the job for Marshal Morg Rocklin who plans to get married. The new Marshal is due in town the next day. Unfortunately, a bunch of troublemakers are in town. Among them is rancher Joshua McCloud's no-good son who's bringing in a herd of cattle for sale. Immature, spoiled and quick tempered, the McCloud boy gets into an argument with his cowhands in the saloon and shoots one dead. The Marshal tries to arrest McCloud's son who draws on the lawman and gets killed. Postponing his wedding, the Marshal rides out to break the sad news to old rancher McCloud who has recently taken a young gold-digger wife. The old man drinks too much lately. The Marshal fears the worst for his meeting with the old rancher who doesn't yet know that his son was killed. To make matters worse, Bart Thorne, the McClouds' head ranch boss hates the Marshal and wants him dead. Written by nufs68

Want to know about his Air Force Tour of Duty
3 September 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When I saw the movie "He Rides Tall" on Encore Westerns, I immediately noted that his voice struck a chord in my memory. I am pretty good at recognizing voices of movie actors and people that I have met or listened to for many years. I still recognize the voice of Gabriel Heatter. When I found out Tony was in the Air Force, I felt that I had met him. Even his face became familiar. I just can't remember where I saw him, because I had been to so many places between 1951 and 1965. I served at Patrick AFB; K-14 Korea; Orlando AFB; Washington DC (twice); Hickam AFB, Hawaii; and Edwards AFB, CA. I have also lived in a lot of different places. I hope if someone sees this, they could give me some information on where we might have met.
