"historically narrated"
29 August 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I know...it's a typical "B", 50's movie, and as such, immune from historical consideration.

This one was actually "narrated"...with names like "Johnny Ringo", Ike Clanton, and "Curly Bill"...real characters that lived in Tombstone.

The opening lines talked about a attempted murder happening on a trail outside the town of Phoenix...near Tombstone. Any Arizona 5 year old then, or now, knows phoenix was a barely existing village, two hard days ride from the thriving city of Tucson, and 4 hard days ride from Phoenix to Tombstone.

These characters lived...some died near Tombstone in 1881... The hero was a captain of the the "Arizona Rangers"...which wasn't formed until 1901.

B movie?...OK, I sure wish they'd leave real historical names alone.

All the gagging pseudo-history aside....I did enjoy George Montgomery.

George Williams....Tombstone Arizona
