Synopsis in German
Arizona 1867. Sieben Outlaws, angeführt von Stretch und Dude, rauben die Bank einer kleinen Stadt aus und entziehen sich der verfolgenden Kavallerie in die Salzwüste. Halbtot gelangen sie in eine zerfallene Stadt, die früher Yellow Sky hiess. Ihre einzigen Bewohner sind Constance Mae, genannt Mike, und ihr Grossvater. Sie graben nach Gold und haben eine grosse Menge davon gefunden, was die Banditen bald erfahren. Während Stretch, der das Mädchen liebt, für ein gerechtes Teilen zwischen dem Alten, Mike und den Kumpanen ist, will Dude das ganze Gold. Bei den Auseinandersetzungen, die daraus entstehen, wird Stretch verwundet, Dude und die anderen Banditen bis auf einen getötet. Stretch bringt das in der Bank geraubte Geld zurück und kehrt mit dem letzten seiner Spiessgesellen zu Mike und ihrem Opa nach Yellow Sky zurück. (Hembus, Western-Lexikon)
