Monte Walsh and Chet Rollins are long-time cowhands, working whatever ranch work comes their way, but "nothing they can't do from a horse." Their lives are divided between months on the range and the occasional trip into town. Monte has a long-term relationship with prostitute Martine Bernard, while Chet has fallen under the spell of the widow who owns the hardware store. Camaraderie and competition with the other cowboys fill their days, until one of the hands, Shorty Austin, loses his job and gets involved in rustling and killing. Then Monte and Chet find that their lives on the range are inexorably redirected. Written by

Did You Know?
When Monte and Chet are delivering wire to Fighting Joe Hooker, you see Joe, in a close up, pull the rope with his left hand and start to wrap the end of the rope around the post with his right hand. When the camera angle changes to a longer distance shot, he makes the exact same move. Obviously the same scene shot from 2 different angles. See more
