Movie Details

This film tells the story of Bat Masterson: gunfighter, army scout, buffalo hunter, and lawman. The film chronicles the adventures of the debonair Bat Masterson, who became a deputy marshal in Dodge City. Later, after some drunken episodes, he left town rather than surrender his firearm. President Theodore Roosevelt appointed Masterson to the position of U.S. Marshal in the state of New York. He then went on to do lawman's work in the Oklahoma Territory. His reputation as a gunman obscured the fact that he spent his later years as a sports writer for the Daily Telegraph. Archival photographs, reenactments, and historic commentary tell the tale of one of the most famous gun men in the West. ~ Rose of Sharon Winter, Rovi
