Screen great Joel McCrea (Union Pacific, Ride the High Country) and the dazzling Yvonne De Carlo (Tomahawk, TV’s The Munsters) have a date with destiny in the powder-keg of the West, beyond the Border River. Desperately hoping to turn the tide of the Civil War, Confederate soldier Clete Mattson (McCrea) steals $2 million in gold bars from the Union and heads for the Mexican border town of Zona Libre, where he hopes to buy munitions and supplies. With Yankee troops in hot pursuit, Clete soon discovers he might be in a worse situation with a greedy despot (Pedro Armendáriz, 3 Godfathers), crooked businessmen and other shady characters intent on double-crossing him. Directed by action-adventure ace George Sherman (Larceny, The Comancheros) in glorious Technicolor.
