The Ox-Bow Incident

When a posse of citizens from a small western town catches up with a group of three men they suspect of murdering a local farmer and stealing his cattle, they want to waste no time in seeing justice done. It’s up to two drifters, Henry Fonda and Harry Morgan, to attempt to stop the lynching. William Wellman’s study of mob mentality is universally acclaimed as one of the classics of the Western genre.
