Movie Info

After a group of drunken trail riders runs amok, Mayor Andrew Hope (Carl Benton Reid) of Wichita, Kan., recruits the intrepid Wyatt Earp (Joel McCrea) to end lawlessness. Armed and ready for anything, the new marshal decides he will end gun violence simply by banning guns. Soon Earp must face crooked rancher Clint Wallace (Walter Sande) and whiskey slinger Doc Black (Edgar Buchanan), vicious locals who like Wichita exactly as it is and don't take kindly to being told what to do.

  • Mar 05, 2013
    bit of a run on westerns here. this lean and mean tourneur outing is the most badass i've ever seen from joel mccrea, playing wyatt earp (!) in no way historically accurate but who cares. tourneur's westerns are always a bit more complex than your average oater, see also 'canyon passage' and 'stranger on horseback'. gallop-by shootings and theme song by tex ritter

    Ordinary western with cast of familiar faces.
