Samuel Fuller in triple capacity of producer-scripter-director has devised a solid piece of entertainment which has femme star Barbara Stanwyck playing a ruthless Arizona ranch owner, the boss of Cochise County. Into her realm rides Barry Sullivan and his two brothers, former an ex-gun slinger now working for the US Attorney General, his fame with a gun preceding him.

He’s in Tombstone on official business, which means conflict with femme, who rules her domain, including the sheriff, with an iron hand. Further complications arise between the two, even as a romance develops, over Stanwyck’s brother (John Ericson), a brawling, would-be killer.

Stanwyck socks over her role in experienced style and Sullivan is persuasive as the marshal who loses his 10-year record for non-killing by gunning down Ericson after latter has murdered his brother (Gene Barry).
