When Dwight Foley arrives at the ranch seeking help with his horse, he and Mary fall in love and begin plotting the demise of Tyrus and their eventual escape. Their plan escalates and in the end, the three find themselves trapped in a complex web of greed and secrets.
"You don't see a lot of film noir westerns, but that genre turns out to be a winning combination...Humor was never a big factor in 1940s and '50s film noir, but it has a place here. Mr. DiIorio's low-key jokiness comes from attitude and from the smooth use of western vernacular... Forcefully absorbing."-The New York Times.
