When Confederate officer Colt Saunders returns to his Texas ranch after the war he finds his lands wanted by carpetbaggers and by corrupt provisional government commissioners Harrison and Cable.
Produced immediately after Charlton Heston completed The Ten Commandments (1956) and reunited him with co-star Anne Baxter. This was Heston's last film under his original Paramount contract. He felt that Tom Tryon, who was cast as his brother, was not right for the part. However, because "The Ten Commandments" had not yet been released, Heston hadn't yet achieved the star clout necessary to demand cast changes.
Near the end of the movie Anne Baxter is in a wagon that is out of control. It appears to be a dummy on the front seat rather than a stunt person.
