These Thousand Hills 1959
Ambitious cowboy Lat Evans (Don Murray) works hard while looking for a way to become a property owner, one of the landed gentry. His father lost their ranch and he holds to ideals of respectability. Even though banker Marshal Conrad (Albert Dekker) refuses him a bank loan, Lat will not be tempted into crime. His buddy Tom Ping (Stuart Whitman) plans to get ahead by stealing cattle and hiding them in a mountainous area called "The Breaks." Lat is has an affair with prostitute Callie (Lee Remick) and use her savings to get his start in the ranching business. Careful tending of his herd makes Lat prosper while other cattlemen, like cheat Jehu (Richard Egan) suffer losses; Lat is soon a big wheel and eligible to marry Joyce (Patricial Owens), Conrad's decent but prim niece. Even tough he loves Callie Lat has no problem ditching her to raise a family with Joyce. But loyalties are tested when Lat runs for political office: His competitors force him to help run down the latest rustlers ... who are led by his old pal Tom Ping.
