Ruth's husband and other Union sympathizers in town resent Weaver's allegiance to the Rebels during the war. His town turns against him, and soon Brewster hires a mulatto gunman named d'Estaing (Yul Brynner) to come to town and provoke Weaver into a fatal fight. However, the gunfighter becomes a malevolent and sinister force and so the town leaders are forced to turn to the Rebel whom they once wanted dead, to save them from the killer they hired.
