A bandit terrorizes a small Mexican farming village each year. Several of the village elders send three of the farmers into the United States to search for gunmen to defend them. They end up with seven, each of whom comes for a different reason. They must prepare the town to repulse an army of forty bandits who will arrive wanting food. Directed by John Sturges, starring Yul Brynner, Steve McQueen, Charles Bronson, Robert Vaughn, and Eli Wallach.
