In this CinemaScope noir western from 1957, a murderous thief with a million dollars compels a Texas couple (Anthony Quinn and Debra Paget) to leave their ranch and guide him across the Texas border into Mexico. A menacing Ray Milland plays the outlaw, who just happens to be the Paget character's ex-lover.
