Plot

Vowing revenge after his fiancée is abducted from a stagecoach and ends up dead, Chris Danning (Randolph Scott) rides into the town of Coroner Creek seeking the man responsible.

Hotel owner Kate Hardison (Marguerite Chapman) asks him to escort home Abbie (Barbara Reed), the inebriated wife of rich rancher Younger Miles (George Macready), but his motives are mistaken and Chris is beaten by Younger's men. A widow, Della (Sally Eilers), tells him that Younger is trying to drive her off her land, and Chris begins to believe Younger could be the man he's after.

Younger and his men kill a friend of Chris's and the sheriff as well, also setting a fire that leads to Della losing all her cattle. A showdown ensues and Chris gets the best of it, returning to town and to a possible romance with Kate.
