Ride Beyond Vengeance is a western tale about a drifter named Jonas Trapp (Chuck Connors) who falls in love with and marries a woman of a higher class. His beautiful bride Jessie (Kathryn Hays) has a wealthy family who reluctantly supports the newlyweds, but Jonas is a cowboy at heart and grows restless. He soon deserts Jessie to become a buffalo hunter. Eleven years pass as Jonas amasses a small fortune. Finally, he decides to return to his former home. As he nears the small Texas town, a crooked banker, Brooks Durham (Michael Rennie), and his two henchmen (Bill Bixby and Claude Akins) ambush Jonas, take his money, and worst of all, leave him branded as a thief. When Jonas finally reunites with Jessie, he finds she is now engaged to Durham. Jonas vows revenge. This gritty, violent saga was directed by Bernard McEveety who also directed such western television shows as Rawhide, Gunsmoke and Bonanza.
