Earp agrees to become marshal and establish order in Tombstone in this very romanticized version of the gunfight at the O.K. Corral (e.g., Doc is killed by Curley before the actual battle and Earp must do the job alone).
The Cisco Kid and his buddy Gordito arrive in town and learn that Cisco is supposedly dead. Not only that: Before his death, he is believed to have attempted to steal Susan Wetherby's land. Written by

This, the fourth episode in Twentieth-Century-Fox's B series of the Cisco Kid, has Cesar Romero pretending to be dead, aided by a grave and a man who claim to have killed the Kid. The story is well done -- Fox's B unit was probably the best among the majors at this period -- and Edward Cronjager's usual excellent cinematography -- lots of process shots and a tremendous number of basic two-shots -- is handsome without being intrusive.
I am mildly surprised that the Fox Movie Channel is running these amusing little second features so freely -- an attempt by them to run some Charlie Chan movies a couple of years ago raised a lot of fuss about stereotypes: one would not, of course, wish to show movies that implied that an ethnic Chinese man would automatically be the smartest person in the room, or that his U.S.-born children would act like American kids.
