Chino Valdez is a loner horse breeder living in the old west. Partly a loner by choice, and partly because, being a 'half-breed', he finds himself unwelcome almost everywhere he goes. One day, a young runaway named Jimmy shows up at his door looking for work and a roof over his head. Reluctantly, Chino agrees to take him in and teach him the art of raising, breaking and breeding horses, until the pair finally begin to accept each other. Written by

One poster for this movie shows a drawing of a bare-chested Charles Bronson tied with upraised arms to a T-shaped whipping post. This differs from the scene in the movie in which Bronson is whipped while hanging suspended by his wrists from an overhead crossbeam. While two separate whipping scenes may have been shot (and one discarded), a more likely explanation is that the artist designing an early version of the "Chino" poster had not seen the actual movie and was only working from incomplete or misleading script notes.

Anyway, a bunch of Indians stole my horses once. I went along and stole them back. And while they was chasing me, I came off my horse and got run over.
Why didn't they kill you?
Hell, boy, they was my friends!
