Duel in the Sun

Western melodrama about two men battling for the affections of a Mexican girl who is fostered into the ranch-owning family of her father's cousin. Branded a troublemaker by both her family and townsfolk, the girl begins to live up to her reputation and embarks on an affair with both men, each of whom - in their own unique way - is trying to fight against railroad builders who are threatening to destroy their livelihood.
