Old western movie don't know title, actors names, or directors, please help!

Ok so it is about this half spanish girl named pearl, and she goes and stays with her aunt and uncle who have two boys.  The older one is a really nice charming man but the younger one is a bad boy. In short she falls in love with both but the older one leaves and the younger one and her hook up I think. So there is this big scandal and she is not even completely white so nobody wants to be involved with her. The younger brother loves her but refuses to marry her so then she gets an older guy to marry her which the younger brother promptly kills and so on and so forth. I think the guy that plays the younger brother is famous but I'm not sure.

Best answer
"Duel in the Sun" (1946)
starring Jennifer Jones, Gregory Peck, Joseph Cotton, Lionel Barrymore
IMDb synopsis:
When her father is hanged for shooting his wife and her lover, half-breed Pearl Chavez goes to live with distant relatives in Texas. Welcomed by Laura Belle and her elder lawyer son Jesse, she meets with hostility from the ranch-owner himself, wheelchair-bound Senator Jackson McCanles, and with lustful interest from womanizing, unruly younger son Lewt. Almost at once, already existing family tensions are exacerbated by her presence and the way she is physically drawn to Lewt.

EDIT: Sorry! I was distracted and typed "Dust" instead of "Sun". I was thinking of a movie that spoofed "Duel in the Sun". Thank you for the Best Answer!
