Show Summary

Gunfighters is a Wild-West historical documentary TV series developed by the Learning Channel that takes a more in-depth look at the mavericks and legends of the Old West, including some of the more famous gun slinging fights frequently used for cinematic fodder. Host Brian Dennehy shares dramatic footage, preserved archival photos, and personal artifacts of these quick-handed marksmen while also offering the major social factors of the 19th century that brought them into play. The Dalton Gang was considered the meanest and most ruthless group to ever roam the West, even in comparison to their cousin, the equally famous Jesse James and his crew. Their brute force techniques came to a crashing halt with one of the bloodiest shootouts as they tried to rob two banks at once in Coffeyville, Kansas. On the opposite of the violence spectrum, there was Bat Masterson, a sharp-witted lawman with enough skills with a six-shooter to keep any criminals at bay. After his brother was killed in a gunfight, he turned in his badge to become a famous sports writer in New York City. From Wyatt Earp to Billy the Kid to Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, Gunfighters brings new insights to light on these long-gone but not forgotten fighters.moreless
