Brief Synopsis: "Psychosexual melodrama as western - w/aging Joan Crawford as owner of gambling saloon, whose only customer is accused robber Dancing Kid and his gang, including bad Bart (Ernest Borgnine). The Kid loves Crawford, as does surly Sterling Hayden, despite Crawford's middle age. Crawford's enemy is rancher Mercedes McCambridge, who wants to put her (and the kid) 6' under. Anti-McCarthy overtones."
