Another saga of the Dalton Brothers where the siblings are Alan Curtis, Noah Beery,Jr., Lon Chaney,Jr., and Kent Taylor. As we know one Dalton did survive the ambush in Coffeyville and it's Curtis as Emmett Dalton who tells the tale in flashback as he's about to be sentenced for his crimes.
The guys are unapologetic outlaws, but they hear of the murder of an old friend of their father's and discover quite a web of conspiracy involving some landgrabbing by a development corporation whose branch office is headed by Milburn Stone. The real boss however traveling incognito is Thomas Gomez who's a kind of frontier character that no one really takes seriously, but it's all an act.
Curtis also indulges in a little romance with Martha O'Driscoll though crusading newspaperman Jess Barker is a rival. O'Driscoll's father John Litel the editor of the paper is murdered which sets off the climax.
As you'll see the shootout in Coffeyville is almost an afterthought. You'll have to watch this good western to see what I mean.
