Vern Haskell's (Arthur Kennedy) life is shattered when his fiancé Beth is raped and murdered by a ruthless gunman. Without knowing the exact identity of the killer he tracks him down to Chuck-a-Luck, a sanctuary for outlaws run by saloon singer Altar Keane (Marlene Dietrich) and her lover Frenchy (Mel Ferrer). Masquerading as a bandit on the run, Vern attempts to uncover his girlfriend's killer, a task which can only be achieved by seducing information out of Altar. Director Fritz Lang adds an expressionistic touch to this unusually dark Western.
