NOTES

powered by AFI

The working title of the film was The Bat Masterson Story. Canadian-born William Barclay "Bat" Masterson (1853-1921) was a buffalo hunter and Indian scout in Dodge City, Kansas while also intermittently serving as the Ford County sheriff (from 1877-79) and a deputy U.S. marshal (1879). He made his living mostly as a saloonkeeper and gambler. His brothers, Ed and James Masterson, were also Dodge City lawmen. For more information on Masterson, please consult the entry for the 1943 United Artists production The Woman of the Town, starring Claire Trevor and Albert Dekker, directed by George Archainbaud (see AFI Catalog of Feature Films, 1941-50).        Masterson was a featured character in many other Western movies, including the 1947 RKO film Trail Street, starring Randolph Scott and Robert Ryan, directed by Ray Enright (see AFI Catalog of Feature Films, 1941-50 ); Columbia's 1955 film Masterson of Kansas, starring George Montgomery and Nancy Gates, directed by William Castle (see below); Paramount's 1957 film Gunfight at the O.K. Corral, starring Burt Lancaster and Kirk Douglas, directed by John Sturges (see below); and the television series Bat Masterson,which ran from 1959 to 1961, and starred Gene Barry as the lawman.
