The four McDade brothers stage a successful heist -- except that three of them are killed. When their wives and mother learn that only one of the young men survived with the loot, they are eager to find out which one. Slick traveler Dan Kehoe (Clark Gable) catches wind of this strange situation and decides to charm the women in hopes of eventually enjoying the spoils. Before long, however, the lonely females begin competing for Dan, disintegrating into a cut-throat battle royal for his heart.
