Dick Powell stars himself in this Zane Grey Theater production which he also produced through his Four Star company. He plays a hardnosed Union army colonel in charge of a detail to take a treaty to the Commances during the Civil War.

The only problem is that this crew is a bunch of rebels themselves, as nasty a bunch of cavalry troopers since Gregory Peck handpicked a some for a mission in Only The Valiant. But Peck picked his in that film for a reason, Powell had no choice when he was handed these dregs, especially Jack Elam.

His only ally among them is junior officer Don Dubbins. But when they get surrounded with both Confederates and Commanches, the whole crew of them have to make some decisions.

The ensemble cast is a finely tuned machine. You'll have to watch the story to see who and how many make it out of this jackpot.
