From Budd Boetticher, director of 7 Men from Now and Bullfighter and the Lady, comes the 1956 western adventure Wings of the Hawk starring Van Heflin (3:10 to Yuma, and Julie Adams (Bend of the River).

Gringo miner Irish Gallager (Heflin) is caught up in the Mexican revolution of 1910-11 when corrupt administrator Colonel Paco Ruiz (George Dolenz) unjustly seizes his gold mine. Gallager saves the life of guerrilla leader Raquel Noriega (Adams), then finds there’s a price on his head; he becomes romantically involved with her in the course of a series of rescues and ambushes, leading up to Pascual Orozco’s (Noah Beery) march on Ciudad Juárez.
