After a card shark is caught cheating, he is taken out and lynched by the drunkards he was playing against. Soon afterwards, the men who were in the lynch mob start being murdered, one after another; all by hanging, strangling, or smothering. Who will be killed next and who is responsible? Is it one of the original party seeking to cover their accursed deed, or perhaps the mysterious Rev. Jonathan Rudd, who has recently arrived in town? Written by
The casting of Dean Martin and Robert Mitchum produced no chemistry on screen or off. Martin stayed in his trailer all the time when they were not filming, and the critics felt he had just phoned in his performance. See more »

Martin is (unwilling) member of card game that lynches cheater, in 1880s West. Participants in hanging soon find themselves dying off from mysterious causes. Deano is solid as "the best gambler in the West"; great performances also by Roddy McDowall as lynching ringleader, Inger Stevens as the local madame, and particularly Mitchum as the gun-toting, Bible-quoting preacher who comes to town. My favorite of the non-Eastwood westerns.
