Charlton Heston plays Colt Sanders, a Civil War Vet returning home to his Texas Homestead after years spent on the battlefield. But once he arrives at his Bar S Ranch HE he faces conflicts of a different kind. One is with his band new bride, (Anne Baxter), who is desperate to keep her wild, honkytonk gang of ruthless carpetbaggers and their corrupt provisional government intent on nabbing Colt's impressive, valuable spread and keeping the land for themselves.
