Storyline

David Sutton is a drifter from the east headed to Medicine Bow. He stops at a homestead for water and meets Saranora who wants him to take her with him but the owner runs David off. In Medicine Bow David is partially responsible for an accident in the saloon resulting in Trampas breaking his leg and David losing his swamper job. David arrives at Shiloh asking to work in place of Trampas as compensation. However, ranch hand Coley never forgives David for Trampas getting hurt as he counted on Trampas to work with him during the wild mustang roundup. Saranora runs away and ends up at Shiloh looking for David telling everyone they are married. David convinces her to tell the truth and the Graingers decided to protect her from Jeremiah who she claims was holding her hostage as well as her mother until he killed her. Written by Anonymous

Universal put some production heft behind David Hartman's debut as jolly-greenhorn-giant David Sutton, including evocatively photographed landscapes and rowdy horse wrangling scenes. But the script feels compromised, fudging on its initially rigorous character development to become mushy and pat. The story's switch in tone mars a splendid performance by grand old pro Ralph Bellamy and makes hash of its heroine, played by pouty Quentin Dean. Hartman's square-peg presence doesn't fit either. He fares best in his fractious encounters with McClure, who among his other gifts was adept at comic exasperation. Anachronistic bit by The Irish Rovers adds unintentional humor.
