A Classic Action Adventure of the Old West on Cimarron Strip. Jing McQueen (Tim O'Kelly), the drunken son of a wealthy cattleman, shoots a preacher and burns down a livery stable. The Cimarron settlers demand immediate justice. Kilgallen (a saloon-keeper with a thirst for power)(Larry Gates) and gunslinger Wiley Harpe (a newcomer to Cimarron)(Steve Forrest) side with the settlers. When the preacher recovers and refuses to press charges, Jing is released from jail. Kilgallen and Wiley Harpe move into action: they convince the settlers that Marshal Jim Crown (Stuart Whitman) and the preacher have sold out to the wealthy rancher, Mike McQueen (Pat Hingle), who refuses to face the fact that his only son is emotionally immature. By turning the settlers against Crown, Harpe and Kilgallen hope to take over the entire Cimarron Strip.
