In a story very similar to the Elvis Presley vehicle LOVING YOU (1957), Fonda is released from prison and travels to Texas in pursuit of Callahan, a country-western singer who stole a tune of Fonda's called "Outlaw Blues." When Callahan is accidentally shot, the police organize a manhunt
to locate Fonda. Saint James, a singer in Callahan's band, befriends Fonda. The pair become lovers, and Saint James creates a publicity story that elevates Fonda to the top of the charts as a folk hero. It's all done in a rather tongue-in-cheek manner, which adds a certain charm to the picture,
