"You're dead, Bill, and I don't want my daughter married to a dead man."
Fictionalized account of Bill Doolin, member of the Dalton Gang and founder of the Wild Bunch. The movie concerns itself little with history. Instead, it tells a pretty simple "outlaw trying to leave his past behind" story. The Bill Doolin of this movie is a relatively good guy who only kills in a fair fight. Scott's fine in the role. He could play this in his sleep. Nice supporting cast full of familiar faces like John Ireland, Robert Barrat, George Macready, and Noah Beery, Jr. Macready also narrates. Virginia Huston is Scott's love interest. Gorgeous Dona Drake and Louise Allbritton have small parts. It's not a good history lesson but it's a watchable western. Nothing special but some action, humor, and romance. A nice way to pass time on a lazy Saturday afternoon.
