In the movie Strange Lady in Town, Greer Garson portrays Dr. Julia Winslow Garth, a strong-willed and independent woman who is determined to bring her modern medical practices to the Wild West town of Santa Fe. Her arrival is met with skepticism and hostility from the town's residents, particularly the local physician, Dr. Rourke O'Brien (played by Dana Andrews).

Dr. Garth refuses to be deterred by the town's resistance and sets up a makeshift clinic to treat patients in need. She quickly gains the respect and admiration of those who had initially opposed her, including the town's sheriff, Nat Masters (Cameron Mitchell), who becomes her ally in bringing proper medical care to Santa Fe.

As Dr. Garth begins to make progress in her medical quest, she also finds herself falling for the ruggedly handsome but stubborn Dr. O'Brien. Their differing views on medicine and the role of doctors in society create tension between them, but their growing attraction cannot be denied.

Amidst the romantic tension, there are also moments of danger and conflict. Dr. Garth's life is threatened when the husband of a patient who she is treating becomes enraged with her methods, and a high-stakes poker game leads to a violent confrontation between the town's residents and a group of outsiders.

Ultimately, Dr. Garth's determination and dedication to her profession win over the residents of Santa Fe, and she becomes a respected and beloved member of the community. The movie ends on a hopeful note as Dr. Garth and Dr. O'Brien reconcile their differences and decide to work together to provide better medical care for the people of Santa Fe.

Strange Lady in Town is a heartwarming and inspiring tale of one woman's fight to bring modern medicine and advanced medical practices to a town stuck in the past. Greer Garson delivers a powerful performance as a strong and determined woman who refuses to let the prejudices of others stand in her way. Dana Andrews is equally impressive as the rugged and stubborn Dr. O'Brien who finds himself drawn to Dr. Garth despite their differing views on medicine and life in general.

The movie's supporting cast also delivers standout performances, particularly Cameron Mitchell as the dependable and loyal sheriff who becomes Dr. Garth's closest ally in her quest for medical progress.

Overall, Strange Lady in Town is a classic Western drama with a strong message of perseverance, determination, and progress. It is a must-see for fans of Greer Garson, Dana Andrews, and classic 1950s Hollywood films.
