Jeffrey Hunter plays here a kind of vagrant walking west along roads in the desert, showing himself as a man seeking a job in Hollywood. He drops by a little town which the sheriff is played by Neville Brand. The sheriff asks Hunter to get out the little town and fast. Just routine. Brand is the real hard guy here tormenting the poor Hunter and putting him behind bars for a crime committed in the vicinity. A true drama with some clichés, I admit, but so effective.
I won't spoil you this convincing story any further but don't miss it if you can.
Eleanor Parker is very good here as a forsaken wife who searches a little tenderness.
