Good Day for a Hanging showcases the talents of Fred MacMurray and Robert Vaughn in this 1959 western. Eddie "The Kid" Campbell (Robert Vaughn), a former citizen of Springdale, Nebraska, returns with the Fletcher Gang as a stagecoach makes its way to the bank. Intending to rob the bank, Eddie stands lookout as his cohorts enter. Laurie (Joan Blackman), Eddie's childhood sweetheart, greets him as a firefight ensues inside the building. As the gang flees, Ben (Fred MacMurray), Laurie's father and owner of the stagecoach line, chases the gang with the elderly Marshall Cain (Emile Meyer). Ben manages to capture Eddie, but not before Eddie shoots the Marshall's horse, killing him in the fall. As Ben reluctantly accepts the role of Marshall, many are convinced of Eddie's innocence, including Laurie. Ben is forced to maintain order even as Eddie and attorney William Selby (Edmon Ryan) try to turn the town against him.
