Untamed Frontier is a 1952 American Technicolor Western film directed by Hugo Fregonese starring Joseph Cotten, Shelley Winters and Scott Brady. The film, featuring the working title of The Untamed featured the feature film debuts of Suzan Ball and Fess Parker[2]


To the irritation of the US Government, the Denbow family freeze out homesteaders by denying access across their land, using the government land for grazing their cattle herds.

Meanwhile, to evade a murder charge, Glenn Denbow marries the only witness, Jane, who's conveniently in love with him, but favors the settlers. When Glenn goes back to his blackmailing old flame Lottie, a warm regard develops between Jane and cousin Kirk Denbow. Things come to a head when an impending range war coincides with a rustling foray.
