Synopsis

In this western, the town of Glory prepares to stage its annual Founder's Day showdown on Main Street. The guest gunslingers this year are two notorious gunmen, but a mysterious stranger shows up to tell the Mayor that he has recently killed one of the scheduled gunfighters and now intends to take his place in the contest.
