Will Texas be independent or a U.S. state? Ex-President Andrew Jackson recruits cattleman Devereaux Burke to travel through hostile Indian land, find Texas hero Sam Houston and persuade him to support annexation. In exchange, Burke will gain a contract to sell beef to U.S. forces during the war with Mexico sure to follow statehood. Hel also garner something unexpected: the love of beauteous Austin newspaper publisher Martha Ronda. Clark Gable and Ava Gardner play the love-fated pair in this rugged semihistorical saga of Lone Star destiny. Standing in the way: Thomas Craden (Broderick Crawford), the ardent independence advocate and paramilitary leader who desires Martha for himself. Vincent Sherman directs.
