Molly And Lawless John

Molly (Vera Miles), the shy, romance-starved wife of an arrogant frontier Sheriff, finds herself drawn to a prisoner in her husband's jail. This prisoner, a handsome young man named Johnny (Sam Elliot), plays on Molly's sympathy and convinces her to help him escape into the badlands of New Mexico.

A sheriff's meek wife makes a run for the Mexican border with an outlaw her husband was going to hang.
