Movie Details

This film is part of a series that features the lives of famous gunfighters of the Old West. While many of the featured gunfighters are well known, such as Wyatt Earp and Bat Masterson, this episode focuses on the life of Elfago Baca, an inexperienced lawman with a lot of courage. He arrested a drunk cowboy spoiling for a fight, and in doing so, brought the ire of the most powerful ranch in the West down on himself. In the ensuing gun battle, it was Elfago Baca against 80 cowboys. Actor DeForest Kelley played Baca in Duel at Shiloh. With film clips and on-location photography, the story of Elfago Baca comes to life. ~ Rose of Sharon Winter, Rovi
