Tough, lusty Catlow (Yul Brynner) is fast on the draw and even faster when it comes to making a dollar. He's also a wanted man. The Mexican Army is after him. So are his hellcat girlfriend, an Indian war party, a vengeful killer and several hotheaded cowpokes from Catlow's outlaw gang. With enemies like these, it's a good thing Marchal Ben Cowan (Richard Crenna) is around. The marshal is Catlow's best friend, and he'd ride through rattlesnakes to rescue his besieged buddy. Because Cown wants the pleasure of putting Catlow behind bars all to himself. This western rides hard, shoots staight and sinks amiably through its clouds of dust.
