The Halliday Brand is a 1957 American Western film directed by Joseph H. Lewis and starring Joseph Cotten.[1]

Plot[edit]

Daniel and Martha Halliday, son and daughter of the powerful Big Dan, strenuously object to his bigotry and violence. When he leads the lynching of her half-breed beau, Jivaro Burris, it is the last straw.

Dan becomes estranged from his father and closer to his rival, Jivaro's father, while also developing a romantic attachment to Aleta Burris, the dead man's sister. It leads to a showdown between the two sides.
