On a trip to the cemetery to visit his old friend, Steve recalls how Johnny Wade rescues a young runaway Steve Hill during a train stop on the way to Medicine Bow. Steve is accused of stabbing the brakeman but Johnny clears him by pointing out the guilty party. Johnny via an old friendship finds both of them jobs on a ranch neighboring Shiloh. Johnny takes Steve under his wing and teaches him how to be a ranch hand and how to shoot. A new owner Georgia Price buys the ranch and decides to crowd the neighboring ranches off the open grazing land by doubling her herd to make fast money. Her foreman quits and Johnny who hates barbed wire and fencing cattle ranges takes over. Steve comes to see Johnny is wrong after a discussion with Judge Garth and a run in with the Texans Georgia hired. He leaves and takes a job at Shiloh. After an attempt to stampede cattle to destroy the barbed wire fails, Steve is forced into a show down with Johnny. Written by Anonymous

Steve's story
16 April 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Remake of 1955 Kirk Douglas actioner "Man Without a Star," tailored to provide a back story for Gary Clarke's character, improves on original in some respects, including better acting and more logical plot progression. Brian Keith effortlessly slides into the star's boots with a lusty performance as the jaded fiddlefoot who takes a liking to the greenhorn Steve. His good-natured mentoring, particularly during an amusing shooting lesson, adds poignancy to Steve's difficult decision to break away and side with Judge Garth in a festering land dispute. Gary Clarke's winning personality helped lay the foundation for the success of "The Virginian." His premature departure early in season three left a glaring vacancy that was never adequately filled.
