Veteran cowboy actor Scott is on the trail again, but this is not the standard shoot-'em-up. The story has more suspense than most, and the whole film moves along at a brisk pace with elements of both comedy and drama. Scott is captured by Boone and his thugs, who have also kidnapped
newlyweds O'Sullivan and Hubbard. Boone and his boys want to rob a stagecoach, but the slimy Hubbard, in an attempt to save himself, tells them that O'Sullivan comes from a wealthy family, and it would be easier to get money by holding her for ransom. From there, the tension builds as Scott plans
