Storyline

Naive farm boy Cass Bunning dreams of a bounty hunting career in nearby Silver City. He's fast with the gun but Silver City isn't a place for honest men.On the way to town Cass meets outlaw Billy Pimple and his gang. Nothing bad happens but Cass feels he will see Billy Pimple again. In town, Cass meets naive newcomer girl Nellie Winters off the stagecoach. She wants to waitress at Madam Mamie's saloon and cat house. Revolted, Cass saves Nellie by running away with her and hiding in a hotel room. Arrested by the deputies, Cass and Nellie face the drunkard Judge Roy Bean. He has a bar set up in his courtroom and, in between cases, the audience and the judge wet their whistles. In order to save the town's morality the judge marries Cass and Nellie. As gift, the newlyweds get a free hotel room with the judge's compliments. While riding outside Silver City, Nellie and Cass unexpectedly run into Jesse James and his men. Worse still, Billy Pimple hasn't forgotten about Cass either. Written by nufs68

a great goodbye from Audie Murphy and Budd Boetticher.
18 August 2005 | by (S. Paulo, Brazil) – See all my reviews

This film shows a cruel west. There is a scene where Judge Roy Bean is shown presiding the court, and the fact that he looks like a good hearted old man contrasts sharply with his sadistic way of giving the sentence. It also has cruel gunfighters like Billy Pimple with his stupid laugh and a voice like someone who is still in puberty. When Cass Dunning (Richard Lapp) is arriving to Silver City he meets Billy who tells him to be careful about wearing his guns in town. He implies that if one is not able to use them, one should not wear them. Cass thinks he is great at the draw and he is willing to prove it. He ends up rescuing Nellie (Anne Randall) from the whorehouse and they are married by the Judge Roy Bean. After that we get the best moment of the film. The couple meets Jesse James (Audie Murphy), Frank James and Bob Ford. If ever one actor could play Jesse James at this mature age it is Audie Murphy. He is excellent. Curiously, Audie played a young Jesse in "Kansas Raiders"(1950). Jesse tells Cass he is not up to being a gunfighter yet, because his hands sweat, but he saw him practicing and tells him to look him up when he can. Richard Lapp is different from any conception one might have of a western hero. And so is the film compared to other westerns, starting with the music at the beginning that is as far as it can be from anything epic or grandiose. This was a great goodbye from Audie and from Boetticher, It was Audie's last film and Budd's last western.
