Experience an outdoor screening of this classic 1958 Western starring Van Heflin and Tab Hunter, right where it was filmed at Empire Ranch in Sonoita, Arizona!
Rancher Lee Hackett (Van Heflin) spends so much time trying to keep the violent streak of his drunken, gunslinging son Ed (Tab Hunter) in check, he neglects the needs of his other son, brooding pacifist Davy (James Darren). When Ed’s temper results in the death of an innocent man, Lee tries his best to cover his son’s tracks by making a deal with unscrupulous horse trader Jensen (Ray Teal), who falsely testifies on Ed’s behalf. But it soon becomes clear that Ed can’t change, and a shootout between father and son becomes tragically inevitable. This widescreen color Western from director Phil Karlson (Hell to Eternity) is a gripping thriller exploring the consequences of violence in the Old West. (Dir. Phil Karlson, 1958, USA, 97 mins., Not Rated)
