This was one of two dozen Walter Wanger and Harry Sherman films re-released theatrically in the 1940s by Masterpiece Productions, and ultimately sold by them for US television syndication in 1950. It was first telecast in New York City on WCBS Saturday 17 June 1950. See more »
Marshal, I'm the mayor here. Aren't you overstepping your authority?

Bystander Richard Dix stops a bank robbery by the James gang. Badly injured, he awakens to find himself unwittingly elected the town's new marshal, at the behest of local bank president Albert Dekker, who turns out to be a tyrant who wants Dix firmly under his thumb, a position the marshal has no plans to assume.
The best things about this are the presence of Dix and Dekker, as well as a rowdy saloon fight that has people swinging from chandeliers and rioting uncontrollably. Everything else is too derivative and too mediocre to be memorable.
Look fast for George Reeves as Jesse James.
