Plot Summary

Captain Wade Hunnicutt is the wealthiest and most powerful citizen in his Texan town; he is also a notorious womanizer, which has turned his wife Hannah against him. She has brought up their son Theron to be dependent upon her; but as he reaches adulthood, Hunnicutt insists on taking over his upbringing, initiating him in hunting and other masculine pursuits, under the watchful eye of Rafe, Hunnicutt's loyal employee. But Theron's new lifestyle leads him into a love-affair with a local girl, and thence to his learning things about his parents that were previously hidden from him. Written by David Levene

Did You Know?

Edit
Trivia First suggested as a vehicle for Bette Davis and Clark Gable. Ultimately the idea of casting Gable was abandoned as the actor was no longer under contract to MGM and refused to ever work there again because of the poor treatment he had received there when he was let go a few years earlier.

Goofs Theron is shooting cans off a fence for target practice. However, every time he hits a can, it shoots straight up in the air instead of backwards. In addition, little puffs of bluish smoke are visible - probably indicating a small charge of gunpowder was used to propel the cans. See more »

Quotes Capt. Wade Hunnicutt: ...Kind of man that walks around with nothing in his pockets, no identification because everyone knows who you are. No cash because anyone in town would be happy to lend you anything you need. No keys 'cause you don't keep a lock on a single thing you own. And no watch because time waits on you.
