Synopsis

Ex-lawman Steve Judd is hired by a bank to escort a gold shipment from a mining town. To help him, he hires his old friend and colleague, Gil Westrum, along with the latter’s young saddle pal, Heck. But Westrum and Heck only accept the job in order to hijack the gold. En route to pick up the gold, they spend the night at the farm of a Quaker whose daughter, Elsa, defying her father’s wishes, joins them with plans to elope with her boyfriend, Billy, at the mining camp. (in « Sam Peckinpah » de Gérard Camy, L’Harmattan, 1997)
