Rites-of-passage Western about a young sheriff gaining wisdom from an old hand. When bounty hunter Morgan Hickman (Henry Fonda) rides into town with his latest catch, he's greeted with the indifference and contempt he's come to expect. With the town's sheriff recently killed, young, inexperienced replacement Ben Owen (Anthony Perkins) discovers that Hickman was once a sheriff and asks for guidance. Initially reluctant, Hickman finally agrees to show Ben the ropes, in doing so shedding his cynicism, and regaining his self-respect.
