A Classic Action Adventure of the Old West on Cimarron Strip. The notorious outlaw, Jud Starr (Darren McGavin), is rescued from hanging by his old gang. Against her will, Jud takes his former sweetheart, an Indian girl (Barbara Luna), back to her tribe. As he begins raiding the Cimarron Strip, Jud uses the Cherokee Indian territory as his haven. Marshal Crown (Stuart Whitman) tracks Jud down, kidnapping him from the Indians on the eve of his wedding to the girl. Caught by the pursuing members of Jud's gang, including Beau Bridges, Crown tricks Jud into admitting his tale about $85,000 in hidden loot is a hoax. When Jud's gang learns the booty they hoped to share does not exist, they turn him over to Marshal Crown and leave. Though wounded by the Indian girl in her attempt to free Jud, Crown manages to break the outlaw's emotional hold on her. In a final attempt to escape, Jud Starr is shot and killed by Marshal Crown.
