The Hills of Utah is a 1951 western about the deep-seated tensions that can form in a small town. After diligently working his way through medical school, Dr. Gene (Gene Autry) does not head off for big city success. Instead he establishes his practice in a small frontier town, torn apart by violence and feuds. The cattlemen, led by Bowie French (Denver Pyle), and the miners, led by Jayda McQueen (Onslow Stevens), are at each others' throats, fueled by long-standing aggression. In the aptly named Coffin Gap, Gene knows he will struggle to fit in and succeed as a doctor. However, Gene has his reasons for coming to Coffin Gap: his father was recently murdered, and Gene will not rest until he finds the killer. In the midst of the feuding and hostility, Gene finds a friend in Dusty (Pat Buttram) and something more than a friend in Karen McQueen (Elaine Riley). Gene's plans for justice start to sour, however, when he becomes the suspect in a murder case and must prove his own innocence in a war-torn town.
