Wyatt Earp cleans up the title town after it's overrun by rowdy cattlemen. Made nine years after "My Darling Clementine," the definitive film about Earp, this standard oater focuses on the legendary gunman's early career. McCrea would have been well suited to the role except that he was 50 when this film was made and was much too old to be playing Earp as a young man starting his career as a frontier lawman.

Earp is assisted here by Bat Masterson, a role McCrea himself played a few years later in "The Gunfight at Dodge City."
