As we continue our celebration of the 150th anniversary of the Chisholm Trail, watch how life on the cattle trail was depicted by Hollywood in four movies. The second movie in our series is the 1939 film Dodge City with Errol Flynn and Olivia de Havilland. Wade Hatton (Flynn) is a cattle man who arrives in the frontier community of Dodge City which is overrun by footloose cowboys and outlaws. When Hatton helps Dodge City lawmen capture a gang of cattle rustlers, he’s asked to help guide a wagon train into town. Back in Dodge, he finds a gang has taken over the city. Appointed the new sheriff, Hatton is determined to clean up the town and put the outlaws out of business. In his rare moments off duty, Hatton tries to win the affections of Abbie Irving (de Havilland) who believes he is responsible for her brother’s death. (Runtime: 105 minutes)
