Desirous of starting a family, the young Catholic housewife, Rosemary Woodhouse, and her struggling actor husband, Guy, move into the Bramford: New York's iconic building which brims with unpleasant stories of obscure dwellers and ghastly occurrences. Before long, the young couple is befriended by their somehow eccentric next-door neighbours, Roman and Minnie Castevet, and, shortly after, Rosemary gets pregnant. However, little by little--as the inexperienced mother becomes systematically cut off from her circle and friends--alarming hints of a sinister and well-planned conspiracy begin to emerge, enfolding Rosemary in a shroud of suspicion and mental agony. In the end, why is everyone so conveniently eager to help; furthermore, why is Guy allowing it?

Before they arrive in town, they save an old wrangler named Windy from drowning, who has been fired on from ambush as he was delivering a valuable stud bull to the depot. Windy, whose sole trusted weapon is a blacksnake whip, tells them he works for the Three-J Ranch adjoining Trumbull's spread. Hoppy and Johnny soon learn that Trumbull's outfit isn't the kind they want to work for, turn down the job offer, and take work with the Three-J, operated by easterner Jim Jordan and his sister Sally. Jordan is planning on fencing in his grazing land, but Trunbull swears this won't happen because, unknown to the other ranchers, Trumbull's men have been driving rustled cattle through a pass on the Jordan land. Hoppy and Johnny aid Jordan in getting his fence up, while Trumbull's men first try to stop them by gun warfare and then by starting a stampede of rustled cattle toward the narrow pass where the fence is being erected. Hoppy dynamites a dam, releases a torrent of water, and then succeeds in turning back the herd on the rustlers. The troubles at the Three-J are over and Hoppy and Johnny head back to the Bar 20.

What could rock their world is that Jim's ex-fiancée, proverbial man eater Fran Harper, the sister of one of their friends Jud McCrae, he and his wife Bee McCrae who don't much like her, has just gotten a Reno divorce and is said to be on her way back to cause trouble as Fran has not yet made the divorce public, but once it hits the media, it will lead to a circus atmosphere for Jim and by association Tony in the scandal all over again of Fran having left Jim at the altar six years ago, the full story of which Tony is unaware. Fran does end up coming back, bringing along with her a poor cad named Mort Holmes, who she picked up at a speakeasy along the way. Fran has indeed come back to cause trouble, more specifically to steal Jim away from Tony for her own selfish reasons, those reasons which do not include being in love with him. Mort is solely a pawn in her scheme to make Jim jealous. Tony may be less naive about the situation than her husband as Tony's own mother was just like Fran. As such, Tony decides to take matters into her own hands, taking measures to neutralize Fran's, and hopefully, in the process, show Jim the true woman Fran is, which is not the poor innocent as she likes to portray.
