Dodge City is the classic 1939 Western from legendary director Michael Curtiz (Casablanca, Mystery of the Wax Museum, The Sea Hawk) and featuring the most oft-arrested actor in motion picture history in a role unlike he had previously played before. Wade Hamilton (Errol Flynn, The Adventures of Robin Hood) is an honest to goodness all-American hunky hero who stumbles across danger and adventure in Dodge City. Seems the town is run by a self appointed, self righteous cattle rancher, Jeff Surrett (Bruce Cabot, King Kong) who really doesn't care if his shoot 'em up oasis makes general living conditions inhospitable. But Wade has different ideas. In fact, there is a growing political concern in the town who would like to see him made town Marshall. After all, it was Wade's ingenuity and perseverance that helped usher in the railroad. Of course, all is not rosy in Wade's world either. His affections for Abbie Irving (Olivia DeHavilland) have gone by the proverbial romantic way side ever since he shot her brother. But both Abbie and Wade eventually reconcile their conflict of affections in alliance on the side of truth, justice and the American way. As it is, Wade's given a horse, six-shooters and a lot of gumption to go against Jeff and his cronies, thereby restoring peace, order and good government to Dodge City.moreless
