Story of a young Wyatt Earp before he became a lawman. When someone important to him is killed he sets out to find the one responsible. He is joined by some friends among whom are Bat Masterson and Doc Holliday.
The film's basic story is based on truth. There was indeed a relatively-famous actress named Dora Hand who was accidentally killed by troublemaker James "Spike" Kenedy in Dodge City while asleep in the place of Kenedy's real target, Mayor James "Dog" Kelley in 1878. Wyatt Earp, Bartholomew "Bat" Masterson, Charles "Charlie" Bassett, and William "Bill" Tilghman tracked down and arrested Spike on the day after his murder of Hand, and brought him back for trial. In the end, however, Spike was acquitted for lack of evidence with the help of his influential father Mifflin and went free. Spike died in 1884.
You have to understand the War Between the States. The war formed us, made us who we are. After killing your own cousins, your own brothers, killing strangers meant nothin'. Lawless times followed those long dark years.
Spike gets the drop on Wyatt and points his pistols at him, pulls the trigger and discovers he s out of bullets. He throws down the pistols and jumps on Wyatt. During the fight scene you can clearly see the pistols still in the holsters. Later in the fight the pistols are gone.
