In a near-lawless mining town, vagabond-doctor Joe Frail rescues a criminal from a lynch mob, and is the subject of unwanted affections by Elizabeth, one of his patients. Unconventional and too-often overlooked, this is Gary Cooper's final performance in a Western. Received an Oscar nomination for Best Original Song, "The Hanging Tree." Filmed near Yakima.
