| A humble rebel with a mute boy and his dog
If you loved Shane, you will probably like this movie too. It revolves around a Rebel solider (Allan Ladd) who comes to a small Illinois town with his 10-year-old mute son (David Ladd), and the boy's dog. The boy had been traumatized while watching his mother being killed, by Union soldiers, in their Atlanta mansion. The father is devoted to finding a doctor who can cure his boy, and the boy is devoted to his father and his dog (a great sheep dog).

Here, de Havilland plays a tough woman trying to make a go of a farm that had been left to her by the men in her life who had been killed. Her enemies are a family of sheep ranchers who want to get her off of her rundown ranch so that their sheep can get to water. She had steadfastly refused to leave.

Things change when she offers to pay Ladd's legal fine for fighting one of the sheep ranchers---after being provoked by him. Since she had no money to pay the fine either, she offers to let him work it off on her ranch. Of course the boy and the dog come to live in the bunkhouse too.
