Plot Summary

Most everyone in town thinks that Sheriff Calder is merely a puppet of rich oil-man Val Rogers. When it is learned that local baddie Bubber Reeves has escaped prison, Rogers' son is concerned because he is having an affair with Reeves' wife. It seems many others in town feel they may have reasons to fear Reeves. Calder's aim is to bring Reeves in alive, unharmed. Calder will have to oppose the powerful Rogers on one hand and mob violence on the other, in his quest for justice. Written by Buxx Banner

Edit
Trivia Producer Sam Spiegel had acquired the property, on which this film was based, in the 1950s, and originally wanted Marlon Brando to play the role of Jason "Jake" Rogers, and Marilyn Monroe to play his lover, Anna Reeves. By the time production began in 1965, however, Brando was too old to play the role of the son, and took the part of Sheriff Calder instead. Brando was paid seven hundred fifty thousand dollars, and his production company, Pennebaker, was paid a fee of one hundred thirty thousand dollars (Brando's sister Jocelyn Brando also was cast in the small role of Mrs. Briggs).

Quotes Damon: Well now, Sheriff, it's nice to know that you're out here on patrol.
Sheriff Calder: No, no, I'm not on patrol. Just lookin' for an ice cream cone, that's all.
