Bill King is a well respected retired lawman from Medicine Bow who is trying to make a living for him and his daughter farming and prospecting. He is about to lose his ranch to foreclosure when an outlaw appears wanting Bill to hide him out on his ranch for pay with gold from a freight robbery. The young man was once caught as a kid by King bur released due to his age. Bill agrees as he needs the money and finds himself with a trio of robbers and their plan to steal another gold shipment. Ryker devises a plan for shipping the gold that will make them less attractive to steal. At the same time his daughter who has Trampas' eye, wants to travel back east. During his visits to see her, he notices a horse matching one used during the holdup. Bill has to decide what his next actions will be; preserve his name or go along with the planned crime when the trio threatens his daughter. Written by Anonymous

Erickson's fall
17 April 2013 | by See all my reviews

Leif Erickson, remembered as the indomitable John Cannon in "The High Chaparral," plays an authority figure who takes a long fall from his high horse in predictable but well-acted drama that reflects savvy of forgotten director Alexander Singer. Erickson gives a stinging portrayal of a proud man humiliated by advancing age and encroaching poverty. McClure, lovely Joan Freeman, Karl Swenson (who pulls a grizzled teamster from his bottomless trunk of colorful characterizations) and Michael Sarrazin also flourish. Sarrazin is much livelier playing a smirking bad guy than he'd be later as Jane Fonda's droopy leading man in "They Shoot Horses, Don't They?"
