Set in the cattle country of Texas' Big Bend, HIGH LONESOME stars Barrymore as a young drifter whose rootless presence in the area makes him the prime suspect in a series of mysterious murders. He is captured by a rancher and held on his property until it can be established whether he is
responsible for the deaths. The true killers, brothers Elam and Kashner (who were believed killed in a range war years ago), have returned to the area seeking revenge on the families that had made war on them and it is they who have set up young Barrymore to take the fall. Only when Barrymore is
wounded while defending the ranchers from Elam and Kashner is he proved innocent. This was LeMay's only film direction; he would later be remembered for writing the novel on which John Ford's masterpiece THE SEARCHERS was based.
