Working titles for Law and Order were Saint Johnson and Bullet Proof. According to modern sources, W. R. Burnett's novel was based on exploits of Wyatt Earp. Modern sources also claim that Law and Order was re-issued as Guns a'Blazing. Law and Order has been the title of many westerns. Two of these Westerns were remakes of Burnett's story: Universal's 1940 film (see below); and a 1953 Universal production directed by Nathan Juran and starring Ronald Reagan. A serial version entitled Wild West Days starring Johnny Mack Brown was produced by Universal in 1937.
