Steve Forrest is the gunfighter James Devlin in this tale of redemption and honour set in the Wild West of the 1800s. Sentenced to die by hanging for killing a man, Devlin survives the noose, and discovers he has gained the uncanny ability to read other's minds. His discovery leads him to renounce the way of the gun, and his own lawlessness. When he meets Sharon Acker, a young widow in danger of losing her ranch to a ruthless land baron, Devlin uses his eerie power to come to her defence.
Also starring Dean Jagger, Will Geer, Barbara Luna and Cameron Mitchell.
