Dodge City

Synopsis: Dodge City. A wide-open cattle town run by Jeff Surrett. Even going on a children's Sunday outing is not a safe thing to do. What the place needs is a fearless honest Marshal. A guy like Wade Hatton, who helped bring the railroad in. It may not help that he fancies Abbie Irving, who won't have anything to do with him since he had to shoot her brother. But that's the West.
Genre: Western
Director(s): Michael Curtiz

stop us before, if you'd known.

Why? It seemed a better idea to let

you and your pals work your head off...

packing and curing those

hides until they caught you.

So that's why you waited so long?

The Indians might just as well get

the hides in good salable condition.

All right, Hatton.

But I hope you stick around

Kansas for a long time...

because we're gonna collect for

every one of those hides in full.

Right. If you're ever

around our way, look us up.

All right, boys.

- Congratulations, Colonel.

- Thanks, Rusty.

Wade, you've been a great

help in building this railroad.

Now the real work begins.

We've got to make it pay.

That's up to you.

No, it isn't. I've got other work to

do. We're looking further westward.

I want you to take charge

here, help build up this town.

- Organize trade for our road.

- No, thanks, sir.

We're on our way back to Texas. We'll

drive cattle up to meet your railroad.

If we keep hanging around here, these

two galoots are gonna get civilized.

We better leave here before old fog

head starts eating with a knife and fork.

A knife, anyway.

You couldn't keep Wade here, Colonel.

He's the most moving-on

man you ever saw.

First off, he was in the

English Army over in India.

Then he got mixed up in some kind of

a hooray revolution down in Cuba way.

Then he started punching cattle in Texas.

That was before he enlisted in the war.

So he's either the greatest

traveler ever lived...

or else he is the biggest liar.

And now, it gives me great

pleasure to introduce to you...

the man who made this

progress possible: Col. Dodge.

Ladies and gentlemen...

today a great chapter of

history has been written...

and we take justifiable pride...

in bringing this railroad to the

terminal furthest west in this country.
