Most everyone in town thinks that Sheriff Calder is merely a puppet of rich oil-man Val Rogers. When it is learned that local baddie Bubber Reeves has escaped prison, Rogers' son is concerned because he is having an affair with Reeves' wife. It seems many others in town feel they may have reasons to fear Reeves. Calder's aim is to bring Reeves in alive, unharmed. Calder will have to oppose the powerful Rogers on one hand and mob violence on the other, in his quest for justice. Written by

Producer Sam Spiegel
had acquired the property this film was based on in the 1950s and originally wanted Marlon Brando
to play the role of Jason "Jake" Rogers and Marilyn Monroe
to play his lover, Anna Reeves. By the time production began in 1965, however, Brando was too old to play the role of the son, and took the part of Sheriff Calder instead. Brando was paid $750,000 and his production company Pennebaker was paid a fee of $130,000 (Brando's sister Jocelyn Brando
also was cast in the small role of Mrs. Briggs). See more
