No relation to the TV series of the same name that appeared only a few years later, in fact this movie had its name changed to the rather silly SWIRL OF GLORY (from the poster) when it was shown on TV in order to avoid confusion. 

Randolph Scott is a rather straight-laced fella just looking to make his way after the Civil War ended but he runs afoul of Raymond Massey over a dancehall girl. 

Some typically wonderful character turns for this period including from veteran scene-chewers Arthur Hunicutt and Cuddles Sakall.

Scott was kind of an unlikely cowboy star, having started out in adventures and sophisticated comedies, but he successfully carved his niche and in the long run ended up as one of the most memorable cowboy heroes of them all.
