Olivia de Havilland,
The Liberal Kansas area is in trouble. The town is without a Marshal and the nearby farmers are unable to grow crops due to the summer drought and trail riders that run cattle over their land. Bat Masterson arrives to bring law and order and his Deputy accidently finds a variety of wheat that will withstand the drought. But the farmers are giving up and leaving and Bat must convince tham to stay. He wants them to continue farming and also help round up the local gang of outlaws.Written by

Although there was a drought in the area of Liberal, Kansas, located in Seward County, Kansas, Masterson was not a U.S. Marshal there. He was elected sheriff of Ford County. He was elected in 1877 and subsequently voted out in 1879. His brother Ed Masterson, not Bat, was marshal of Dodge City. See more »

Hey, Masterson. You didn't think you were gonna stop my friends from gettin' me outta here, did yuh?
Marshal Bat Masterson:
If they do, you'll go out feet first with a bullet right between the eyes and not in the back like you gave McKeon.

Well, the musical numbers keep bring this thing to a screeching halt. Should have left them out. Anne Jeffreys is "Ruby", who does the singing in the saloon, as required. Jeffreys, Randolph Scott, and Robert Ryan star in this very typical western from RKO. Something about Bat Masterson accepting the job of sheriff in a town where sheriffs don't last long. And Gabby Hayes is in here for comic relief, as he was in most of the westerns ever made. It's all "okay", and the conversations are all pretty slow and stilted. (Supporting actress Madge has an interesting story on wikipedi.org , if you have a few minutes. Justice gone wrong.) Fistfights, gunfights, mistaken identity. Novel by William Corcoran.... not a lot of info on him anywhere. On Turner Classic now and then. Watch this one to see Randolph Scott, or substitute any other western du jour. Directed by Ray Enright. Enright had been around since the VERY early days of silents.
