Cowboys Gil Carter (Henry Fonda) and Art Croft (Harry Morgan) ride into a small Nevada town and have a drink at a bar. The next thing they know, they are in the midst of a barroom brawl, which sets them apart from the locals. The sheriff is out of town, and a lynch mob forms, led by Major Tetley (Frank Conroy), when the news is revealed that a rancher has been killed by rustlers. The cowboys ride out of town and witness the mob hanging three men. When they learn that no rancher was killed, the cowboys' reaction is to search for the truth and bring justice to the killing of three innocent men. This film presents a psychological view of mob violence and its aftermath and is based on a true story that took place during 1885 in Nevada. A great Western that received an Academy Award nomination for Best Picture.
