The American Film Institute Catalog of Feature Films, 1941-1950, incorrectly omits sixth credited Steve Brodie as Logan Maury, and mixes up the roles played by Billy House, Virginia Sale and Harry Woods. They are correct as listed above. (After being advised of the error, the American Film Institute added Steve Brodie to the cast list and now has the correct list in its Catalog.) See more »
Although the official credits and publicity for the movie state Masterson's middle name as Bartley, it was actually Barclay. Randolph Scott introduces himself correctly as William Barclay Masterson to Billy House's Carmody character when he initially enters town. See more »
This one is a very solid Randolph Scott Western. He plays Bat Masterson and goes to Liberal, Kansas to clean up the town. He becomes good friends with Robert Ryan who played a very, straight up leading man role. It was not until after this that Robert Ryan began playing much darker roles. In fact, in 1947 Randolph Scott made one other movie which was not a western and never made anything but westerns after that until he retired in 1962. This movie has good pacing and builds up to the climax steadily. I can't say any more as it would give away the plot. Be sure to see this one. 8/10
