Soon, Jess Burgess, who dared to tell Slayton that it's not a good idea to keep Jennifer with them, is tied to a fence and abandoned to the vultures. Later, Ben Warren, who recovered, finds and saves Jess Burgess. Both men decide then to go in search of Slayton and his gang who are heading to Mexico. Nobody wants to help them with the exception of Johash, an Indian whose sister died because of Slayton. While the attempts of escape of Jennifer are failing one by one, the three men come closer and finally catch up with the gang. Slayton proposes then to Ben to give him back Jennifer if Jess agrees to join up with him. Jess agrees but is shot by Clayton. Ben pursues then Slayton in order to get rid of the criminal once and for all. Directed by Raoul Walsh in 1953.
