Blaise Starrett is a rancher at odds with homesteaders when outlaws hold up the small town. The outlaws are held in check only by their notorious leader, but he is diagnosed with a fatal wound and the town is a powder keg waiting to blow.
A poor farmer is obsessed with finding gold on his land supposedly buried by his grandfather. To find it he conveniently moves a marker out of his way that designates the land on which it rests as as God's Little Acre, where anything that comes from the ground will go to God's work. Eventually he abducts an albino to help him find the gold. Meanwhile, his daughter-in-law is suspected of fooling around with a labor activist out of work since the mill closed, and a local political hopeful actively seeks his daughter's hand in marriage.

Shrill and annoying--like watching a "Beverly Hillbillies" movie that was directed by Jerry Springer!
A crazed Southern patriarch spends all his time digging on his property for gold that he insists that his grandfather hid somewhere on their property and he gets his two dim sons to him on this never-ending quest. As a result, they really do no productive work--they just dig and dig. As for the women, they are all horny and trashy and spend most of their time writhing about like they are in heat! My goodness, this is an incredibly shrill and awful movie. It's a shame, as I wanted to like it since it starred Robert Ryan (one of my favorite actors) but it was almost like watching a movie starring the characters from "The Beverly Hillbillies" played in a manner even less subtle than the comic strip! I am pretty sure that most Southerners cringe when this film comes on TV, as it's nothing but horrid stereotypes and Hee-Haw style acting! Aside from Rex Ingram, no one in the film seemed the least bit real. Robert Ryan just yelled like a moose in heat and the rest of the cast weren't much better! The movie is simply terrible and trashy from start to finish.
Other than to watch sexy Tina Louise or because you detest Southerners and want to look down on them, I honestly can't see any reason at all to waste your time with this one.
