Flynn didn't consider himself a good Western hero, but he was perfect, and Dodge City, for the time it was made, and even in today's harsh light, is near perfect. Another one of the many great films made in 1939.
Dodge City 1865,After the closing of the Civil War the town of Dodge City is turned into a crime ridden hell hole with Jeff Surrett(Bruce Cabot),his mistress,Ruby(Ann Sheridan)and two top gunmen,Yancey(Victor Jory)and Munger(Douglas Fowley)in charge.
Into town comes cattle boss,Wade Hatton(Errol Flynn)and his two sidekicks,Rusty(Alan Hale)and Tex(Guinn Big Boy)Williams).Also along is Abby Irving(Olivia De Havilland)who is Wades true love.Abby is in love with Wade but because of a gunfight with her brother(William Lundrigan)where Wade had to shoot him in self defense,Abby now hates him.
Wade is asked by the people of Dodge and the local newpaper publisher(Frank McHugh)to stay and help clean it up.At first Wade refuses but after the senseless murder of a child,Wade at last agrees and becomes sheriff.
Can Wade clean up Dodge,take care of Surrett and his gang and win Abbie?See and find out.
Great Western from a Great Studio(Warner Brothers)
1 - It is a very fast-moving story. No lulls here. 2 - The hero of the story (Errol Flynn) is a very likable guy. 3 - The gorgeous Technicolor (not many color films made around this time) which looks even bolder and brighter on the DVD. 4 - The story sports a good combination of action, drama, romance and comedy. 5 - A very young Olivia de Havilland at her prettiest
This was one of the first westerns to feature a well-known actor, helping to give the genre a boost in reputation. Bruce Cabot andVictory Jory are credible as villains. Alan Hale is tolerable in his normal role as the buffoon. The only disappointment was Ann Sheridan, a beautiful woman who did not look as attractive in this film and had a role much smaller than one would believe from the billing she gets on the DVD back cover.
