Cattle rustler Wes Anderson has just delivered the eulogy at a funeral - his own. He was supposed to be hanged, dead and gone. But a mob put the noose around the wrong man's neck. Anderson escaped. And now he aims to settle the score with the vigilantes who arranged his necktie party. Almost a decade after their landmark Double Indemnity, Fred MacMurray and Barbara Stanwyck doubled up again for the cowboy saga The Moonlighter (seen in 3-D in some theaters). MacMurray portrays hardened outlaw Anderson. Stanwyck is the woman once romantically linked to him, but soon wearing a deputy's badge and sworn to bring Anderson back dead or alive. She always gets her man.
