A Dementia-Friendly screening of the Elvis Presley starring Western.  At the end of the Civil War, a Confederate team is ordered to rob a Union payroll train but the war ends leaving them technically outlaws.  When one of the soldiers, Vance (Richard Egan), returns home, he finds that his old girlfriend Cathy (Debra Paget) has married his brother Clint (Elvis Presley).  The troubled family tries to reconnect – whilst also evading the law.
