Out of work and in need of cash, two former lawmen (Joel McCrea and Randolph Scott) agree to accompany a shipment of gold from the Sierras to a faraway town. But while one of the friends wants to take the money and run, the other intends to finish the assignment, resulting in some serious on-the-job friction. In addition to capturing Scott's final film role, this classic Western drama also helped cement director Sam Peckinpah's fledgling career.
