The film's climax shows Emmett Dalton being killed in a shoot-out during an attempted bank robbery in Coffeyville, Kansas. In reality, Dalton survived the shoot-out and went on to write the book that this film was based on. See more »
Towards the end of the 19th Century in America, civilization surges ever west and in it's wake, came that inseparable pair, INJUSTICE and CRIME. In the history of the reckless violence that seized Kansas and Oklahoma, no name carried more terror than DALTON. There were more famous outlaws, but none more daring, none more desperate.
This, then, is the story of the Dalton brothers, based, to a large extent, on the tales that the old settlers still tell of them-woven together with strands of fiction. But, so incredible were the Daltons, that no man can say where fact ends and fancy begins. See more »
Average western with a cast full of familiar faces but this is nothing special. What is Kay Francis, the essence of urban sophistication, doing in this routine oater? Sliding down the Hollywood ladder that's what. After years at the top she quarreled with the brothers Warner over money and they effectively finished her career. Here she is mid slide, freelancing at Universal and whatever studio would offer her work, she had one good part ahead in The Feminine Touch at MGM with Rosalind Russell than it was a series of junk until she ended up at poverty row studio Monogram for three minor films and a fall into obscurity and reclusiveness.
