Ford is a storekeeper who tries to live down his father's reputation as a quick gun. When Ford gets drunk and shows his talent with a pistol, Crawford hears about it. Crawford thinks he himself is the top gun and forces the reluctant Ford to a showdown. After the showdown, the
townspeople dig two graves, one marked for Crawford, the other for Ford--so that Ford can live out the rest of his life in peace. Tamblyn does a nicely choreographed acrobatic dance number before it is all over.
