Plot: Chaney (Charles Bronson), a mysterious, down-on-his luck drifter during the Great Depression, arrives in town in the boxcar of a freight train. He comes upon a bare-knuckled street fight run by gamblers. After the bout, he follows one of the fight's organizers, the fast-talking "Speed" (James Coburn). Chaney asks Speed to set up a fight. Betting his few dollars on himself, Chaney wins with a single punch.
