US Air Force veteran Ben Brown has been charged with the murder of aging Cole Clinton, a leading citizen of Durango County, New Mexico. Several months after the discovery of Clint's dead body, Ben was turned in to the authorities for a reward by his wife, Laura Mae Brown, who claims she witnessed the murder. Ben has signed two confessions to killing Clint, who picked up the Browns hitchhiking on the road on his way back home from an out-of-town cattle auction. In addition to the charge against Ben, Laura Mae is charged as a co-defendant, her trial to be separate from Ben's. Although the alleged murder did not happen in Durango County, the trial is held there where most of Clint's friends and family will definitely be in attendance, their goal to see Ben convicted and executed.

In the flashback of Ben and Laura Mae hitchhiking along the lonely road in New Mexico miles from town, Cole Clinton drives up in his Imperial convertible and offers them a ride. The convertible has a rear view mirror clearly showing attached to the front windshield in the camera's wide shot point of view. In the next closeup scene with the point of view from the front of the car and the windshield centered in the frame, the rear view mirror is missing. In the next scene, a wide shot of the car driving into the hotel parking lot, the rear view mirror is mysteriously re-attached back onto the windshield. See more »
I was introduced to Nick Adams on the set of Twilight of Honor by my then girl friend Joey Heatherton. He was one of the nicest guys i had ever met and we became fast friends in the few days i spent with him and Joey while they were filming this movie. When I was about to go back to NY, I asked Nick for an autograph and he gave me a very large photo of himself and Kirk Douglas. i just took out that picture after many years and read the inscription that Nick wrote on the photo. It reads, "For Paul- This is the only big picture I have left so I hope you don't mind Kirk staring at you too. Only I just want to say I think you are a great guy and am very happy to be able to call you a friend. Looking forward to seeing more of you. Your Friend, Nick."
Soon after he wrote this to me I was told that he died...and later was told he took his own life. I was shocked and to this day do not know the story behind his suicide. I will treasure this photo forever.
