Awful lot of law for a little cowtown
Lin McAdam (James Stewart) and his friend High-Spade (Millard Mitchell) arrive in Dodge City for a shooting contest, in which the prize is a perfectly manufactured Winchester repeating rifle. Lin knows that his sharpshooting brother, Dutch Henry Brown (Stephen McNally) will also be in the contest.
Lin narrowly defeats his brother in the rifle contest, but Dutch Henry and his friends ambush Lin and steal the Winchester, leaving their guns behind. Then Dutch loses the rifle in a card game and in the following days, the gun passes through several more hands before finally returning to Henry. This brings Lin back into the picture again, for an ultimate showdown with the treacherous Henry.
