The story takes place in Skull Creek, a 1870s Montana gold camp. Dr. Joseph Frail (Gary Cooper) arrives, setting out his shingle near the camp's boom-or-bust hubbub of adventurers, ladies of fortune, mountain men and just plain decent folks. As skilled with a six-gun as with a scalpel, Frail will need both. His life will become intertwined with a young Swiss immigrant (Maria Schell), a man he saves from a mob (Ben Piazza), a shifty-eyed miner (Karl Malden) and a hellfire preacher (George C. Scott).

Sound and Very well done old school movie. I would recommend this movie for all to see. Well worth the price of admission to any theater.
