The father is played by an actor with a big presence who won an Oscar for a big movie, and the young wife he brings home is played by an Oscar winner for Best Actress. She, in this movie, and one son fall for each other.

Okay. A guy helps some other guys carry out a murder when he thinks he is just helping them push someone around, and he gets some moral and spiritual help afterwards from a young lady and a Catholic priest.

Okay, then, next up:

 

Early 1950s Western. Gunman / gambler wins a ranch with a cut of the cards at a poker table. Turns out the spread is debt-ridden, and there's a herd of cattle standing around when they should be on the way to the railhead and the market. So. Cattle drive through bad terrain, apposing land-grabbers who want the drive to fail, indians, range fires, etc, etc.

The guy now holding the deed had been approached to help the big rancher who was trying to buy up the whole valley. He changes sides, when his own interests get folded in.

Revelation halfway through the story: A state law says land deeds can not be put up in gambling games. The elderly rancher who lost his spread says that law was meant to protect fools and drunks -- and he is neither one. He takes no steps to void the title transfer.
