Quick Overview

Starring Walter Huston, Harry Carey, Russell Hopton, Raymond Hatton,

Ralph Ince, Andy Devine

Directed by Edward L. Cahn



Print: black/white

Runtime: 75 min.

Genre: western

Print Quality: B



An early screen version of the oft-filmed tale of Wyatt Earp, Doc Holliday,

and the Gunfight at the O.K. Corral, Law and Order was adapted by young

screenwriter John Huston from W. R. Burnett's novel, which alters the

names of the principals but few of the facts. The film opens with a

montage of the settling of the West, concluding with the observation that

lawless behavior soon followed in many settlements. Walter Huston plays

Frame Johnson, a steely-eyed gambler whose three companions, Brant,

Luther (Frame's brother), and Deadwood, form a team of sorts, wandering

from town to town in search of a good poker game. Johnson's reputation

as "the man that cleaned up Kansas, the killingest peace officer that ever

lived" precedes him when he arrives in Tombstone, a town controlled by

the Northrup brothers and their crooked sheriff, Fin Elder. A committee of

lawful citizens, led by a judge, try to hire Johnson to clean up the town,

but he's reluctant to pin on the badge again. Inevitably, he does, and

there's a showdown that leaves a corral full of corpses.
