The Redhead and the Cowboy is a 1951 western movie starring Glenn Ford and Rhonda Fleming, directed by Leslie Fenton.


Gil Kyle finds himself caught up in the politics and unrest of the American Civil War and soon gets framed for a murder. His only alibi is Candace Bronson, who is aiding the Confederate cause and has left the territory to deliver a vital message about a Yankee gold shipment. So he sets off in pursuit, running into desperados, government agents, and guerrilla fighters, who are more interested in profit than ideals.
