At one point Barnum tells Larkin of 100 head of cattle "down at the Thompson ranch at South Fork". South Fork was the name of the ranch of "Jock Ewing" (Jim Davis, who plays Case Silverthorne here) on the TV series Dallas (1978). See more »
Case Silverthorne (Jim Davis) is a recently retired gambler. He's on his way to a ranch that he now owns. However, his ride there is interrupted when he comes upon an injured Marshall and a dead man hanging near him. It seems some gang hung the guy and the Marshall was injured trying to stop them. In a coincidence you'd only find in a film, the dead man is the guy who sold the ranch to Silverthorne! Now, the Marshall and Silverthorne are going to investigate the murder.
Soon after Silverthorne arrives in town, the dead man's grown children learn that their trusted ranch hands are cattle rustlers. The rustlers don't care that they were discovered and say that their dead father was behind all this! Whether or not this is true, the brother and sister aren't sure--but they are afraid to tell others because it might just be true. What's to become of this? Well, it's complicated as the son, Judd, turns out to be a hot-headed idiot! And, what about the murder of their father? See the film if you'd like to know.
This is a relatively low budget film--with fair acting, fair writing and a fair plot. None of it is bad and none is particularly good either. The perfect time-passer.
