Spoiled, callow brother of richest man in the area gets outdrawn and wounded drawing on a notorious fast gun (Jack Jennings) who had tried joining the drive incognito so he could outlive his reputation. Favor and Jennings take him (Little Sam) to town for medical attention and wait at the saloon till the sheriff returns so they can report the self-defense incident. Meanwhile, brother Big Sam shows up threatening revenge. Also involved, by coincidence, is the ex-girl friend of Jennings and current be-aux of of Big Sam -- Kate Merrill, who is hostess-singer at Big Sam's saloon. Little Sam dies from the wounds, and Big Sam organizes a mob to storm the saloon and lynch Jennings. The bloody outcome is a surprise ending I have never seen before. Written by chipe
