Synopsis

Outlaws Gil Duncan, Tom Mack and Tench rob a stagecoach outside Rio Vista, then turn the money over to sheriff Walt Reardon, who is Duncan's son, to delude Walt and local residents into thinking that they are honest. Walt, however, is unimpressed, as he is familiar with his father's lawless past. When a Wells Fargo agent is murdered while working undercover for Special Agent Jackson, Walt follows the murderer's trail to his father's cabin, and is wounded when a gunfight erupts. Duncan brings Walt to town where he is treated by Dr. Bradley and his daughter, Lois, who is Walt's girl friend. While Walt is recuperating, his father learns the details about the local gold mine's next shipment from Jackson, who is unaware of Duncan's criminal intent. Duncan, Mack and Tench then steal the shipment after which Jackson alerts Walt, who, now recovered, pursues the outlaws with him. Duncan is mortally wounded in a gunfight against his son and Jackson, but when Tench attempts to shoot Walt, Duncan kills Tench to save his son. After Mack killed is in the ensuing gunfight, Walt and Jackson return the gold to the mine.
