I think it's the third title in ACT's link -- the "Canliss" episode of the TV series RAWHIDE -- that's the best match:

Yep, I think SDavidson probably misremembered it as a movie -- the RAWHIDE plot seems closer to his description, and was B&W, and TEXAS ACROSS THE RIVER was color.

I probably actually saw this episode, although I don't particularly remember it -- I watched RAWHIDE pretty religiously back in those days. Anyways, it's available for viewing on YouTube (not great picture quality):
