Thirsty, trigger-happy cowmen pour into Dodge City, where might too often makes right.
There ought to be a law in this corrupt, bullet-ridden town and once trail boss Wade Hatton pins on a badge, there is.
In his first of eight Westerns, Errol Flynn is as able with a six-shooter as he was with a swashbuckler's sword. He confronts lynch mobs, slams outlaws into jail and escapes (along with co-star Olivia de Havilland) a fiery, locked railroad car.
In short, Dodge City is a classic Warner Brothers western about a cowboy out to tame the wild west.
