Randolph Scott is a Determined Bounty Hunter in “Ride Lonesome”

In “Ride Lonesome”, a Budd Boetticher/Randolph Scott classic, Ben Brigade (Randolph Scott) is a former sheriff turned bounty hunter.
He appears to be only interested in the bounty money that he will receive for taking young outlaw Billy John (James Best) into custody. But the job has its dangers because Billy boasts that his outlaw older brother Frank (Lee Van Cleef) has no plans of allowing Billy to be brought to justice in Santa Cruz.
On the trail, Brigade and his prisoner come upon a stagecoach way station and, after a battle and some Indian trouble, wind up with additional unwanted companions on their journey – the trading post manager’s wife Carrie (Karen Steele), and two untrustworthy outlaws Sam Boone (Pernell Roberts) and Whit (James Coburn).
Meanwhile, Frank and gang reach the trading post station and pick up Brigade’s tracks.
Brigade’s troubles mount ten-fold with Indians over the hill, Frank’s gang in hot pursuit, and the menacing Boone who is set on personally handing Billy over to the law for amnesty. But, the plot unfolds even further when there is a twist to Ben Brigade’s motives for capturing Billy John.
