Abilene, a rip-roaring cattle town at the end of the Chisolm Trail. A place where the cattle-drives end and a cowboy's quest for women and whiskey begins. But things are changing: Homesteaders have arrived and are anxious to make the town a peaceful family community. That's when the trouble starts!

A spectacular, action-packed production starring Randolph Scott as the town Marshall and the lovely Ann Dvorak as the dance hall queen who sings, dances and romances. Also starring Rhonda Fleming as the nice girl and young Lloyd Bridges as the leader of the settlers. One of the best Westerns of the period.
