The Burning Hills is a Western movie from 1956 starring Tab Hunter, Natalie Wood, and Skip Homeier. It was directed by Stuart Heisler and produced by Edmund Grainger. The story is set in Texas in the 1860s and follows Trace Jordan (Tab Hunter), a former Confederate soldier on his way to start a new life in California. Along the way, he meets a beautiful young woman named Maria (Natalie Wood) who is fleeing from the Mexican bandit Jose Esqueda (Skip Homeier).

Trace agrees to help Maria reach her destination, but their journey is complicated by the fact that Esqueda and his men are hot on their trail. They have a valuable herd of horses with them, and Esqueda wants it for himself.

As they travel through the desert, Trace and Maria grow close, and they begin to fall in love. However, Esqueda's constant attacks make their journey dangerous, and they must fight to stay alive. Along the way, they encounter a variety of interesting characters, including a group of bandits who turn out to be former Confederates like Trace.

The Burning Hills is a classic Western movie with all the elements you might expect from the genre: beautiful scenery, exciting action scenes, and a touch of romance. The performances of the lead actors are excellent, with Tab Hunter giving a particularly strong performance as Trace Jordan.

The movie is also notable for its use of location shooting in the Mojave Desert. The desert landscapes provide a stunning backdrop for the action, and the cinematography is impressive throughout.

Overall, The Burning Hills is an enjoyable Western that is well worth watching. Its timeless story of love and adventure is still as entertaining today as it was when the movie was first released over 60 years ago.
