Frontier Marshall 1939 Randolph Scott Western
Stars: Randolph Scott, Nancy Kelly, Cesar Romero
Frontier Marshall is a version of the famous Gunfight at OK Corral with Scott as Wyatt Earp and Romero as Doc Holiday.
The main character is Wyatt Earp (Randolph Scott) newly deputized as marshal to try to bring some law into the town of Tombstone. The character Of Doc Halliday (Ceasar Romero) also plays a prominent role.
In Tombstone, Arizona the sheriff is unwilling to stop Indian Charlie from shooting up the place, so new arrival Wyatt Earp does. Earp is beaten by some of Carter’s hired men for taking the law into his own hands.
Dance hall girl Jerry is upset with Earp, so when her sweetheart Doc Halliday gets to town, a showdown seems imminent. Earp and Doc instead become friends. Earp takes over as the lawman in town and also tries to convince Doc’s former sweetheart Sarah Allen that their relationship can still work out.
The two men work together after visiting entertainer Eddie Foy is taken captive. They also pair up when Jerry joins forces with Carter to plan a gold shipment robbery. Doc is forced to perform surgery to save a life, then is shot in the back by Carter. Earp avenges his friend’s death and Jerry leaves.
Frontier Marshal co-stars Nancy Kelly, Cesar Romero as “Doc Halliday” (the name was changed for the film from the original “Holliday” because of fear of litigation from Holliday’s family), John Carradine, and Lon Chaney, Jr. Ward Bond appears as the town Marshall. Eddie Foy, Jr. plays the large supporting role of his father, entertainer Eddie Foy, in this as well as three other feature films. He looked almost exactly like his famous father.
