Quotes

Marshal Matt Dillon: [Walks alone on Boot Hill, thinking aloud] There must be easier ways to die than most of the men up here took. Passing away in one's sleep, or gently dissolving in old age, or even being carried off by a disease of some kind. But getting stabbed, shot, hung, kicked to death - all the violent ways we have of dying out here. They leave a man without any dignity at all, and it's worse when it happens suddenly, when a man hasn't time to prepare himself. It's something I myself have to face every day...

Matt bides his time to catch a killer.
30 July 2013 | by See all my reviews

Jesse Wheat is an older cattleman that happens to be returning from Dodge. On his way home he meets two of his cowhands, Jim Box and Rod Allison, on the trail. Jim Box tells Jesse that he is tried of working for him and shoots him. Rod is horrified but when Box tells him that he is right in the middle of the crime, Rod goes along.

The reason that Box killed Jesse is to sell his cattle and get rich. But he really has no plans of splitting the money with Rod. And when Box sees a chance to sell Jesse's cattle he jumps at the chance and at the same time knocking Rod out of the way.

There is a mildly interesting side plot that has Jesse's young wife, Anna, having feelings toward the young cowhand Rod Allison. All this really does is make the villain Jim Box even more nasty and Rod looking more naive. Even though the story had its flaws, the viewer was interested in finding how this story was going to end. And when Matt and Chester ride off from the farm house, enough justice had been served.
