Dodge City

A leisurely 'epic' Western, hugely enjoyable in its skilful marshalling of stock ingredients as Flynn, wagonmaster turned sheriff, tames the rumbustious cattle town at the end of the railroad line with the aid of the crusading newspaper editor's daughter (de Havilland). Nothing here you haven't seen before (in fact the marathon saloon brawl turns up all over the place as stock footage), but it's put together with great freshness and skill. Ann Sheridan, though given little enough screen time as the saloon girl, is as usual a standout.
