The hunt is on for seven men. Seven murderous rogues who robbed a Welles Fargo freight station of 20,000, killing a clerk in the process. Ex-lawman Ben Stride (Randolph Scott) is the man determined to track down those seven men, for it was his beloved wife who was murdered during the heist. During his quest, Stride encounters a struggling, California-bound pioneering couple (Walter Reed, Gail Russell) as well as an old nemesis, Masters (Lee Marvin), with whom Stride shares an uneasy alliance. All will find themselves swept into the drama of Stride's search for frontier justice. Guns blaze and deceptions abound in this rugged drama, with Scott perfectly cast as the stoic, no-nonsense Western hero.
