The Sons of Katie Elder

"From the four winds they came, the four brothers, their eyes smoking and their fingers itching..."

The Sons of Katie Elder has John Wayne, Dean Martin, Earl Holliman and Michael Anderson, Jr. playing the brothers, Katie Elder's sons. When they finally make it back together in their hometown in Texas, it's to attend her funeral. They soon find that their father had lost the ranch where he and their mother had lived by gambling it away and had managed to get himself killed, leaving Katie penniless and alone.

The local folks aren't particularly welcoming to the four brothers because Katie had been their much loved friend and they knew that her sons had failed to come back and take care of her when they should have.

The brothers decide to try to find their father's killer and get the ranch back. The local sheriff tries to dissuade them from their mission, so when he is killed, they're naturally the first suspects, resulting in a gunfight between the brothers and the deputy and his gang.
