Widower Lee Hackett (Van Heflin), a cattle rancher who is a product of the old west, tries to bring up his two sons, Ed (Tab Hunter)and Davy (James Darren), in his image, but Ed is wild and unruly. The two brothers are both attracted to Clee Chourard ('Kathryn Grant(I)') but she prefers Davy. Ed's efforts to outshine his father and brother and everyone else leads him into a career of a gunfighter, and a confrontation with his father.

The film's "interiors" were all built on the Hollywood's Gower Gulch Columbia Pictures' film studio lot, on the Sunset-Gower Columbia Corporation's Studio Sound stages. During the Columbia Corporation's 1970-1972 reorganization, the corporate moved to join, merge, with Warner Brothers to form The Burbank Studio. The Columbia 'Burbank' Ranch became the property of Warner Brothers. In the meantime, the Sunset-Gower Columbia Studio's 14-acre property sat fallow, a scavenging crew stripped the sound-stages, offices complex for all the electrical copper-wiring. In 1977, the phantom studio property was purchased by Sol Pick-Nicholas Vanoff Enterprises, re-titled "The Sunset Gower Studios". The new Pick-Vanoff tenant had the additional expense of replacing the entire studio facilities electrical wiring, fuse box, and applicable electrical requirements for the "entire" lot-property, including the studio's construction mill building.
