Storyline

The Goss family live on a farm they call the dust bowl where the wind blows during the day and the coyotes howl at night. When the train is robbed, everyone thinks that Cotton and Violet were the ones that did the job, but no one has any proof. US Marshal Lloyd Richland comes into town in disguise to find the truth and he finds that the sheriff is corrupt and that the Goss family is gosh darn nice. They take in Richland and a stranded woman named Mary without any questions. Cotton believes that Sheriff Tatum shot their pa in the back, and the sheriff is now trying to plug the boys. Richland is looking for the train robbers, and at the same time is keeping an eye on Tatum and the lovely young Mary. Written by Tony Fontana <tony.fontana@spacebbs.com>

User Reviews

 
Another excellent Western!
28 January 2002 | by mgvolpe1See all my reviews

This movie is in the same category as 'The Big Country', But not in the same league. 'Big Country', is one of the best movies ever for getting good messages across to the audience. 'Gentle Annie' does the same thing and also in an entertaining way that doesn't insult your intelligence. Worth seeing again. Stellar performances by Donna Reed and Marjorie Main.
