Day of Fury - 1956
Day of Fury - Released May 1, 1956. Directed by Harmon Jones
Jock Mahoney is the very tall Marshall Allan Burnett, and he's got a major dilemma on his hands: his life was saved by career gunslinger Jagade (played by Dale Robertson) who had no idea the man he was rescuing was both a Marshall (who he dislikes on principal) but is also engaged to marry his ex-girlfriend Sharman Fulton (Mara Corday).
Events conspire to place the whole town of the aptly titled West End into a pressure cooker as Jagade, Sharman and the Marshall try to work out their unwelcome triangle, and Jagade's influence starts to draw out flaws and hypocrisy in the local townspeople who thought their area was free of lawlessness. In desperation (and because the Marshall is rendered mostly impotent by his personal debt to Jagade) the townspeople are soon forming a lynch mob to take justice into their own hands.
