Adventurer and con man Dan Kehoe visits the homestead of the outlaw McDade Gang, all but one of whom were killed in botched bank robbery. The four beautiful McDade widows (who haven't seen a real man in years) are under protection of their mother-in-law, a women whose fearsome reputation extends hundreds of miles. Supposedly there is $100,000 in gold dust hidden somewhere at the ranch. Bad script; Clark Gable too old for his role.
