Richard Dix (Wyatt Earp) rides into Tombstone and is given the role of sheriff to keep order and keep out the lawless behaviour that is led by Edgar Buchanan (Curly Bill). The film ends with a shoot-out, apparently the famous OK Coral gunfight.
The film could have been better. It's a bunch of cowboys shooting guns and isn't very interesting and the cast is uninspired. Dix doesn't cut it as the lead player he just falls short and Buchanan is just a lump of lard. Surely he wasn't the hardest looking villain they could find?
The best part of the film was Beryl Wallace (Queenie) singing in the saloon. The final shoot-out is ridiculous. For a while, people just stand there and shoot without any cover. They would all be dead.
