Stars of Gunfight at Dodge City: Joel McCrea, Julie Adams, John McIntire
Tagline: THE GUN-DOWN THAT CRACKED THE WEST WIDE OPEN! (original ad – all caps)
Tagline 2: “All The Thundering Might Of The Most Famed Gunfight Of Them All!”
Bat Masterson doesn’t look for trouble, but he doesn’t walk away from it. When an army sergeant in Hays City tries to kill Bat and dies for his trouble, Bat heads for Dodge City where Ed, his brother, is city marshal and a candidate for county sheriff running against the corrupt Regan. Bat buys a share in a local saloon, partnering with the widow Lily. Then, after an ambush, Bat finds himself a candidate for sheriff and the heir to Ed’s intentions toward Pauline, a minister’s daughter. Can the upright but not always law-abiding gunslinger and saloon owner become a lawman and settle down? Or will trouble keep finding him?
Sometimes referred to as The Bat Masterson Story, The Gunfight at Dodge City is not a biography of the frontier lawman who once worked alongside Wyatt Earp. It does have some semblance of facts inked into the narrative, but ultimately view it as light telling of Bat Masterson’s time in Dodge City.
This film boasts some fine performances, wonderful color lensing (night time shots are gorgeous) and that under valued asset of the Western, costuming (check out Lily’s purple frock).
