Cole Thornton, a gunfighter for hire, joins forces with an old friend, Sheriff J.P. Hara. Together with an old Indian fighter and a gambler, they help a rancher and his family fight a rival rancher that is trying to steal their water.
The story is very familiar as this is a virtual remake of Rio Bravo (and much of it is lifted to glorious effect in Blazing Saddles!), but much more laid back and humorous. Wayne and Mitchum play off each other well, and James Caan makes a very likeable sidekick.
