Martin is oddly cast as a rotten ex-lawman intent on taking over the stagecoach line that serves the town of Jericho. Owners Simmons and McIntire work together with ex-marshal-turned-gambler Peppard to stop Martin's evil doing. It appears hopeless, but a final bloody gun battle leaves
Martin dead, Peppard wounded, and the coach line ready to roll. Excessive violence, bad casting, and a predictable plot sink this western.
