Synopsis:
Frontiersman Vern Haskell (Arthur Kennedy) wanders the West obsessed with finding the men responsible for murdering his fiancee. His quest leads him to 'Chuck-a-Luck' - the film's original title - a combination horse ranch and criminal hideout overseen by saloon chanteuse Altar Keane (Marlene Dietrich). Posing as an escaped criminal, Haskell falls in with murderous gunslinger Frenchy Fairmont (Mel Ferrer) and slowly but surely becomes indistinguishable from those he is hunting.
Adapted from a story the director had developed with Sylvia Richards, Lang and screenwriter Daniel Taradash fashioned a highly moral and distinctly feminist tale that innovatively re-worked his quintessential themes of love, betrayal and retribution. A troubled production due to the interventions of studio head Howard Hughes and the fiery relationship between Lang and the iconic Dietrich - seldom better - 'Rancho Notorious' is now justly celebrated as a unique and visionary classic.
