Robert Mitchum is magnificent as a valiant sheriff along with a gorgeous Angie Dickinson as a Saloon girl
The film is based on Will Henry novel titled ¨Who rides with Wyatt Earp¨ , it is starred by Deputy Ben Kane (Robert Mitchum) , before working as a policeman in Wichita (Kansas) and as town marshal assistant of Dodge City (Kansas) , he served other towns like well being narrated in this film . Earp was a man of cool courage and gunfighting skill , he was hired as a shotgun by the authorities and became the town marshal . Here is developed his friendship with a young gunman called Billy (Robert Walker Jr.) who results to be actually Johnny Ringo , a subsequent enemy and along with Clanton-McLaury faction resulted on 26 October 1881 the explosive showdown known as ¨the Gunfight at the OK Corral¨ .
This exciting picture contains sensational main actor casting and a character-full supporting cast . Robert Mitchum as brave sheriff , although affected for previous death , is astounding , his character has a backbone of bitterness somewhere deep inside . Robert Mitchum said he intended to retire from acting when this movie finished filming in late 1968 , but in the following year he agreed to star in Ryan's daughter (1970). Despite being top billed Robert Mitchum does not turn up until 19 minutes into the film . Robert Walker as impetuous gunman is cool , he makes a similar role to Ricky Nelson in ¨Rio Bravo¨ . Angie Dickinson repeats her usual character as Saloon call-girl . Paul Fix as stagecoach driver makes a role likeness to Walter Brennan . The film was well directed by Burt Kennedy . An eighty per cent of this American director's movies have been Western , bad , good and indifferent in equal proportions . He made delightful and tremendously agreeable Westerns (Support you local Sheriff , Support your local gunfighter) but also realized objectionable ,duds , muddled and disastrous Westerns , though his greatest success was as screenwriter of the splendid series Boetticher-Scott in the late 50s (Tall T , Ride lonesome , Comanche station) . This motion picture will appeal to Robert Mitchum and Angie Dickinson fans.
