The latest movie that I have watched with my wife is a 1955 western starring Claudette Colbert and Barry Sullivan.
Texas Lady revolves around the two leading characters and the town of Fort Ralston.
The settlement is ruled over by Micah Ralston, who controls everything with a rod of iron.
Even the town itself bears his name.
The unhealthy hold that he has is challenged and eventually broken by the co-stars.
