Andrews turns in a delightfully tough performance as a cowboy wrongly accused of killing his former fiancee's brother. An angry lynch mob strings him up, but rather than killing him, they let him loose to prove his innocence. Noose-scarred, he turns coldblooded and hunts down the real
killer, who happens to be one of the few sympathetic characters in the entire town. The film benefits from Werker's sure directorial hand and a leathery tone.
