Lon Chaney in the title role
18 January 2017 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

"The Black Marshal from Deadwood" opens July 10 1885, with the surprise arrival in Tombstone of former Deadwood 'Black Marshal' Daggett (Lon Chaney), described by Harris Claibourne (Richard Eastham) thusly: "reputedly one of the toughest and most brutal marshals of the Western territory." Clay Hollister (Pat Conway) is surprised to learn that Daggett is now retired, and plans to live a quiet life in Tombstone as a chicken rancher. Claibourne publishes the news of Daggett's presence in town, which draws the attention of two outlaws itching for a chance to take him down. Hollister is able to decipher Daggett's weakness, a pistol hand that's no longer effective, fearing that if his enemies find out he's crippled he's as good as dead. Lon Chaney was especially busy in TV Westerns, and we're kept guessing as to what his 'black marshal' really wants in Tombstone, a suitably robust performance.
