In Texas, drifter Cruze becomes the marshal of the town of Marlpine but he must face the murderous Moran brothers alone when the scared town refuses to back him up.
Opening credits: The events and characters depicted in this photoplay are fictitious. Any similarity to actual persons places or firms is purely coincidental.
You're just like the people in the last town. They wanted law and order too, but they didn't have the guts to back it up.
As Cruze is riding back with one of the outlaws, he's arrested; tracks of a large earth-moving vehicle are visible at the bottom of the frame in one shot. Such vehicles didn't exist in the days of the Old West.
Opening credits: The history of any frontier region . . . such as the great expanses of the new State of Texas . . . . offered many examples of the strange way in which a few men of great evil could dominate whole communities of well-meaning, but passive citizens . . .
. . . And examples, too, of men of a different breed . . . men who rode out alone for law and order, with badges on their vests and handcuffs in their pockets . . . playing a lone gun against great odds.
