‘Tall in the Saddle’ Movie Synopsis

A ranch hand named Rocklin arrives to a new town where he was promised a job. However, he finds that someone shot and killed his prospective employer a few weeks prior. At the same time he arrives, a pretty young woman named Clara Cardell arrives too as she’s the heir to her uncle’s ranch. Rocklin hasn’t even had the time to unpack his bags when he has a run-in with Arly Harolday, the owner of a neighboring ranch. She’s a woman who can ride and shoot as well as Rocklin. To make matters worse, Rocklin finds that he’s not very welcome in town and that many townsfolk are making plans to swindle Clara out of her inheritance. Oh yeah, there’s also this little thing where someone frames Rocklin for murder.
