Dodge City is a lusty western, packed with action, including some of the dandiest melee stuff screened.

Falling in the cycle of pioneering and American frontier days, Dodge City (Kansas) is essentially a bad man-and-honest-sheriff saga. However Michael Curtiz’s forceful direction lifts this into the big league division.

Errol Flynn is a soldier of fortune, which explains his clipped English-Irish brogue as a Texas cattleman, transplanted to this Kansas frontier. Olivia de Havilland is the romance interest, and Ann Sheridan the dancehall girl.

Cabot’s gambling saloon effectively typifies all the wickedness of the lawlessness that was Dodge City, as the basic excuse for Flynn’s ultimate taking over of the sheriff’s post. The street fighting, licentiousness and the skullduggery having to do with cattle trading typify the lusty atmosphere that backgrounds this actioner.
