Synopsis

Molly Parker lives under the thumb of her husband, the sheriff of a small western town. When the charming outlaw Johnny Lawler is imprisoned there, he plays upon Molly's sympathies and tells her he loves her in order to persuade her to set him free. The two of them go on the road, but before long, Molly realizes that she has been duped by Lawler who grows increasingly cruel to her. Molly endures the situation until the sheriff's men catch Lawler, and when they return to her town, Molly has learned to speak up for herself.
