-The old “Cain and Abel” plot device is redefined within Western terms in MGM’s Vengeance Valley.

-Burt Lancaster stars as ranch-hand Owen Daybright, who has been raised as a son by rancher Arch Stroble (Ray Collins). Stroble’s natural son Lee (Robert Walker) has always been envious of Owen, who in turn has spent most of his life pulling Lee out of trouble and keeping the boy’s misdeeds a secret from the elder Stroble.

-When Lee fathers an illegitimate child, he tries to shift the responsibility on Owen, leading to a life-threatening confrontation with the vengeance-seeking brothers of the baby’s mother (Sally Forrest). There’s plenty of plot twists before virtue finally triumphs.
