The Woman of the Town ★★★★

A first class western, based on historic events in Dodge City, Kansas, has a fairly original story line. Albert Dekker plays Bat Masterson, Marshall of Dodge, and Claire Trevor is saloon entertainer Dora Hand. Dekker makes a very strong westerner and Trevor, a handsome woman and a fine actress, looks very nice in the period clothes. Barry Sullivan has a good part as a likeable villain, although his costumes are rather cartoonish. Eddie Foy Jr adds a note of authenticity playing his father.
