An interesting story with an all-star cast.
12 December 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Aaron Locker is sweet on a saloon girl named Leah Brunson and in fact Aaron is going to ask Leah to marry him. This does not set well with Aaron's brother, Hobie, that claims Leah is just using Aaron.

One evening a buffalo hunter comes named Coley Fletcher comes into the Long Branch and starts trouble with Leah. When Aaron comes in he ask Leah to step outside and Fletcher becomes upset. He knocks Aaron in the head causes fatal injuries. Matt rides out to try to find Fletcher.

Fletcher then comes up on a bitter cowboy named Jubal Tanner shoots Jubal and steals his horse. Matt rides up to the injured Jubal, which seems to have some sort of attitude problem with all mankind, and takes him back to Dodge so that Doc can remove the bullet from his leg.

In the meantime Hobie invites Leah out to the farm by telling her that Aaron had something that he feel Leah may want to possess. But when Leah arrives, Hobie starts up that he was the first one to see her and thinks she should marry him. Leah slaps Hobie and returns to Dodge.

In town she makes friends with the bitter Jubal Tanner and we learn the fact why Jubal is bitter. He was a guard at Andersonville prison during the Civil War and had to obey rules that made men animals.

Hobie comes into Dodge with the purpose of killing Leah. Jubal ends up saving her life but she would have been happy to die, seems she is also bitter. Jubal and Leah maybe two of a kind.

A interesting story with some great actors. Denver Pyle, Kevin Hagen, Peter Breck and Beverly Garland make this an all-star cast that provides entertainment till the end. The script had few if any flaws and the story was compelling. A good watch.
