Theme Song From Ride Beyond Vengeance

Ride Beyond Vengeance is a 1966 western film. It stars Chuck Connors, Michael Rennie, Kathryn Hays and Bill Bixby.

The film was directed by Bernard McEveety and produced by Andrew J. Fenady (written also by him) from the story "The Night of the Tiger" by Al Dewlen. Glenn Yarbrough sang the title song vocals. It was released in January 1966. The budget was an estimated $650,000.

Plot

A census taker (James MacArthur) tells the story of events that occurred in or near a Texas town called Cold Iron with a population of 754.

Jonas Trapp, a poor cowboy known as the Tiger, falls in love with a wealthy woman named Jessie Larkin and they intend to marry over the objections of her aunt (Gloria Grahame).

To gain the aunt's permission, Jessie pretends to be pregnant. Jonas marries her, but after a while he tires of his life in town and heads for the hills without her to become a buffalo hunter.

For more than 10 years, Jonas is gone. He amasses a small fortune of his own and decides it is finally time to return home. On the trail, Jonas is ambushed by three vicious men, Durham, Hood and Coates, who take his money and leave him for dead.

A farmer named Hanley finds the injured man and helps nurse him to health. Trapp, consumed by a desire for revenge, heads back for Cold Iron, where he discovers that wife Jessie is now engaged to another man, Durham.

Connors plays a man of the 1880s.

Connors is held down and sadistically branded with a "T." Connors passes out and wakes up in the care of Fix, the real rustler, who's in cahoots with Rennie. Connors' money has been taken and Hays is now engaged to Rennie. Connors vows revenge.

The film has the look of a made-for-television film (it was produced by the same team that was making Connors' TV series "Branded"), which suggests that this may have originally been slated for the airwaves.

He's met outside the town by Rennie, a banker, and his two henchmen, Bixby and Merrill. Despite the $17,000 Connors has earned from buffalo hunting, the trio think he's a rustler.
