Johnny Mack Brown,
Traveling west, former peace officer Frame Johnson and his three friends arrive in Tombstone, a lawless town controlled by the three Northrup brothers. Preceded by his reputation, the town Council tries to get him to take the job of Marshal. He says he will not wear a badge again but seeing the ruthless Northrup murders he accepts. After a killing on both sides, although outnumbered, Johnson and his two remaing friends head to the OK Corral for a shoot out with the two remaining Northrups and their men. Written by

Anyone familiar with the Star Trek episode "Arena" (the one with the battle between Kirk and the Gorn) and the film "Bill and Ted's Bogus Journey" will recognize the distinctive rock formation that Walter Huston and his group ride past at the beginning of the film: it is located in Vasquez Rocks Park.

If you are old enough to remember the "oaters" from television in the '50s, this is one that you wish you had seen. A thinly vieled "Gunfight at the OK Corral" 25 years before the fact with few words, much action and as the shorts used to say "blazing guns". No gratuitous shootimg here. All the bad guys deserved it.
