Western Marshal


30 Minutes

Douglas Kennedy starred as frontier Marshal Steve Donovan who maintained law and order in Wyoming Territory of the 1870s with the assistance of his deputy, Rusty Lee (Eddy Waller). 

“Lashing out of the pages of American history come the exciting tales of the early western frontier. A primitive land torn by primitive conflicts and boiling with the feuds and lawless strife of frontier days. Here, on the rugged edge of civilization, some of the most desperate outlaws the world has ever known swarmed like a black plague, looting and robbing. But here too, determined to bring peace and justice to this turbulent region of six guns and sudden death, was another breed of men. The courageous officers appointed to wear the proudest badge of all, the badge of the western marshal.” -- Opening Narration
