Story: Triple bill of classic films starring Robert Mitchum. In 'El Dorado' (1966), in the post-Civil War town of the title, alcoholic sheriff J.P. Harrah (Mitchum) does his best to battle the local cattle baron, Bart Jason (Edward Asner). Help is at hand, however, with the arrival of his old friend Cole Thornton (John Wayne), an ex-gunfighter who helps him to rid the town of Jason and his cronies. 'Track of the Cat' (1954) stars Mitchum as Curt Bridges, one of three sons born to stern matriarch Ma Bridges (Beulah Bondi) and her weak, alcoholic husband (Philip Tonge). With the ranch's cattle falling prey to an elusive killer cat, Bridges and his two brothers, Arthur (William Hopper) and Harold (Tab Hunter), are forced to confront the beast to save the family's herd. Finally, in 'Five Card Stud' (1968), when a man is accused of cheating at poker in the town of Rincon, Colorado, gambler Van Morgan (Dean Martin) tries to intervene on his behalf, but his attempts fail and the man is lynched. Sometime later, Morgan hears that members of the lynch mob have begun turning up dead, each one of them murdered by hanging, and he decides to return to Rincon to investigate. However, since he was last there a gold rush has hit the town, bringing with it an influx of new faces, including preacher Rev. Jonathan Rudd (Mitchum) and brothel keeper Lily Langford (Inger Stevens), and this only makes Morgan's task more difficult.
