‘Tall in the Saddle’ Movie Summary
In the late 1800s, a gritty cowboy named Rocklin boards a stagecoach bound for Santa Inez, Arizona. Driving the stagecoach is Dave, a frontiersman spewing authentic gibberish about all the goings on in the area. Dave especially gets a kick out of sending his two female passengers, Miss Elizabeth Martin and her niece Clara Cardell, on a rough ride through the mountainside.
They stop at a roadside inn to rest their horses, and meet Sheriff Jackson and Bob Clews. The two men there to investigate some incidents involving cattle rustling in the area. Rocklin’s in town to see Red Cardell who owns the K.C. Ranch. Some of his cattle were also stolen. Come to find out, someone recently murdered Red, and Clara’s great is his niece.
