Barbara Stanwyck plays a Queen Bee gung-ho rancher who rules her Arizona spread with a posse of hired guns. When new marshal Griff (Barry Sullivan) turns up with his two brothers... she finds herself falling for him. Director Sam Fuller crams barrels of action into a lasso-tight running time; Sergio Leone was so impressed he borrowed the style for his spaghetti westerns.
