A wanted murderer, Billy John, is captured by Ben Brigade, a bounty hunter,
who intends to take him to Santa Cruz to be hanged.
Brigade stops at a staging post, where he saves the manager's wife
from an Indian attack, and enlists the help of two outlaws to continue
his journey more safely.
However, the Indian attacks persist, the outlaws plan to take Billy
for themselves, tempted by the offer of amnesty for his captor,
and Billy's brother Frank is in hot pursuit to rescue him.
But Brigade has plans of his own

Screenwriter Burt Kennedy's line spoken by Pernell Roberts, "There are some things a man just can't ride around," is an echo of a virtually identical line used by Scott in "The Tall T,' another entry in the Scott/Brown/Boetticher series.
Bra straps are seen through Mrs Lane's shirt when Brigade tries to negotiate with the Indian, and in a later scene at the abandoned corrals.
