Newly appointed sheriff Pat Garrett is pleased when his old friend Doc Holliday arrives in Lincoln, New Mexico on the stage. Doc is trailing his stolen horse, and it is discovered in the possession of Billy the Kid. In a surprising turnaround, Billy and Doc become friends. This causes the friendship between Doc and Pat to cool. The odd relationship between Doc and Billy grows stranger when Doc hides Billy at his girl, Rio's, place after Billy is shot. She falls for Billy, although he treats her very badly. Interaction between these four is played out against an Indian attack before a final showdown reduces the group's number. Written by

Doc Holliday just got off the stagecoach! Do you want me and some of the boys to come along with you?
Why do ask that?
Well, I certainly wouldn't want to fool around with him if I were alone.
I don't blame you, but I ain't gonna make no trouble for Doc Holliday. He's my best friend!
