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.
