Lloyd Bridges plays a young attorney looking to set up practice in the old west and certainly believes in the ethics of his profession. But those ethics get good and challenged when he's asked to defend Bill Erwin who kills a young punk Tommy Cook in a gunfight that Cook looked to provoke.
The economics do play into this. Cook was the son of local Ponderosa owner Trevor Bardette and he was a homesteader in cattle country. People become deaf, dumb, and blind and all kinds of pressure is put on Bridges. Even his wife Diane Brewster and daughter Mimi Gibson are harassed.
How it all works out is for you to see this fine Zane Grey Theater story. Bridges and the ensemble cast give fine performances in this quality feature.
