Wyatt Earp:[Opening Narration] Wyatt's refusal of a Citizens' Posse threatened to get him into serious trouble. No peace officer on the frontier could afford to let prisoners escape. Marshal Earp had to recapture four men guarded by one hundred. Wyatt must do it alone or lead a big posse into battle with the Clanton gang. And he couldn't know that the infamous Ten Percent Ring of Tucson had ideas of their own.See more »
