A man is going to hang for a crime he did not commit
16 February 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Two rough and disliked men, Woodley and Cantwell, are drinking at the Lady Gay. They get into a knife fight over some money but Matt comes in before any damage can be done. He tells them both to leave town. They both leaving the saloon in different directions.

Claude and Ab Benteen are waiting outside and rob Cantwell knocking him in the head. Cantwell ends up dead and Woodley is arrest for the crime. He goes to trial and the Judge sentences him to hang.

The weight of having another man die for a crime he did not commit is growing on Ab. The day before Woodley is suppose to hang, Ab goes to town and gets drunk. Inside the Long Branch he starts a fight and draws on a man. The man draws back and shoots Ab. Right before Ab dies he confesses that it was Claude and him that killed Cantwell. And with a storm knocking out the telegraph wires, Matt is unable to get the news out to Hays City.

Matt then has to go out to his good friend Adam Benteen's house to tell him about his son Ab dying and having to arrest Claude. Matt will take Claude to Hays Ci5ty to stop the hanging. Adam tells Matt that he will never make it to Hay City.

On the way to Hays in the middle of a huge storm, Adam shows up trying to get Matt to release his boy. Matt refuses and before a showdown can happen a tree limb breaks off pinning Matt under the limb. Adam can now free his boy from the chains Matt has put on him-- but will anyone find peace in the action?

A nice tale that was well performed. Nothing that really stands out but a nice story that was interesting to the end. Good watch
