Storyline

The Goss family live on a farm they call the dust bowl where the wind blows during the day and the coyotes howl at night. When the train is robbed, everyone thinks that Cotton and Violet were the ones that did the job, but no one has any proof. US Marshal Lloyd Richland comes into town in disguise to find the truth and he finds that the sheriff is corrupt and that the Goss family is gosh darn nice. They take in Richland and a stranded woman named Mary without any questions. Cotton believes that Sheriff Tatum shot their pa in the back, and the sheriff is now trying to plug the boys. Richland is looking for the train robbers, and at the same time is keeping an eye on Tatum and the lovely young Mary. Written by Tony Fontana <tony.fontana@spacebbs.com>

A finely crafted drama with a superb cast.
14 November 1998 | by buxSee all my reviews

This is a great drama, that just happens to be a western. Craig is the marshal that must decide whether he should arrest the family that has treated him so well. This is yet another grand story from the pen of MacKinlay Kantor (Outlaw Territory, 1953/Gun Crazy, 1950). Each character is carefully developed, and, by the climax we really feel the injustice of 'the system.' Morgan shows once again, that earlier in his career he was Oscar material. Keep the kleenex handy, if you can find this one on video or TV you'll need them.
