Storyline

In a film where the leading character is a composite of several American-frontier lawmen (mostly Wyatt Earp,) Clay Tallant comes to Silver City, Arizona in the 1880s and encounters wide-spread lawlessness and disorder, unscrupulous politicians, outlaws galore and brow-beaten citizens. He accepts the position of town marshal and, with his brother and a reformed outlaw , Tex Randolph, who comes over to his side, sets out to bring law-and-order where none exists. He also wins the hand of the singer appearing at the Opera House. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Special Protection
11 June 2015 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Richard Dix who cut a fine figure of a westerner in the original Cimarron plays a Wyatt Earp like marshal in The Arizonian. He's ready to retire from town taming, but when the forces of law and order need his special talents in a place where brother James Bush is settling down in.

The outlaws in this town have special protection as the sheriff Louis Calhern is their leader. He's made them his deputies which is a license to commit all kinds of depravity. One guy definitely not on Calhern's pad is Preston Foster who plays a Doc Holiday type figure.

Foster and Calhern dominate The Arizonian. Dix was always a stalwart hero, a little too stalwart at times. Foster and Calhern give this film whatever color and bite it has.

Western fans should like this.
