In the city

Wichita, Kansas

There was a man of peace

There was a lot of violence

in Wichita, Kansas

He told them all

that the killings must stop

He faced the gun

the worst men in Wichita

It forced them to lay down their arms

Nobody could play

with the Sheriff of Wichita

And for me,

it is a beautiful town

There Wichita

prevailing law and order

Take me Wichita

let me ride

on the trail of Wichita




The leader calls you, Ben.

Yes, Mr. Wallace?

There is water there

we spend the night.

It's less than an hour.

We stop soon.

It will be like that now.

It must fatten cattle


What's going on?

Now we work half a day?

Calves have lost a lot of meat.

They have to eat to recover.

- Well, we ride for two months.

- Two more days, it does not matter.

There is something, Ben?

No, your little brother

is eager to arrive.

I too am a little worried.

So do I. Tell her to take

2 or 3 days.

We will show

how to make a city.

What do you think, Ben?

Well, this is not an Indian.

It could be a scout of thieves.

It y 'has a lot around here.

He goes to us

and it does not hide.

Sure he only wants

eat for free.

Okay, he will eat.

But do not take risks.


Go and investigate this jumper.

"Investigate" to what extent?

Make sure he is alone.

If there are others who come

behind, we are ready.


My name Earp.

Wyatt Earp.

Go down and take a plate.

Tie your horse.

Thank you

Seeks some big gun he carries.

Thank you.

I was tired of my kitchen.

My name is Clint Wallace.

I know. I saw

W on your livestock.

And I saw your land grow.

Is that true? When?

A few years.

Beautiful region.

Quite a piece of artillery

you wear this, my friend.

Yes, I need

in my work.

Beautiful revolver.

But that is not appropriate

a Texan.

We love them

of normal size.

Do not fight against a

Texas bringing this stuff.

It would half an hour

to draw.

Recently, I fight

only against the Bison.

And they are not very fast

to draw.

You've been in Wichita?

here we go.

No, but I heard that

it is a great city.

It grows rapidly since

there was the railroad.

Your herd must be the first.

It will be welcome.

It suits us. How long have

we have seen neither drinks nor women.

There are even those who could

take a bath.

If you are looking for work,

you can come with us.

It's always good to have

Using the end of the trip.

Thank you, Mr. Wallace, no.

I would arrive in Wichita

before you.

I think I will open

trade there.

I hope

you are my customers.

You can be sure,

if you open a bar.

I go to bed.

- Good night.

- Good night.

- Breakfast at dawn.

- Thank you.

Ben Thompson.

- Nice to meet you. You're the boss?

- Yes. See you tomorrow.

Then you open

trade, eh?

- Hunting the buffalo, it must report.

- Yeah.

What is important

is to find savings.

This one looks like one of those

that save.

Bad habit.

Yes, very bad.

The saddle bags.

If he wakes up, I type.

Hunting bison is better

than driving the cows.

And hunt the hunters,

is even better.

With this, our first trip

Wichita will be ...

He woke up.

Yes. And how!

Okay, to you now.

You heard.

After you.

Let me, Gyp.

What is happening here?

It's over, Thompson.

Two of your men

I wanted to fly,

but I convinced them

to return my money.

- He lies, Ben.

- Wait.

I saw you draw.

Whether you right or wrong,

you will not kill my men.

All right.

Well, I'm going.

Thank you for your hospitality.

Bring something

for cleaning.

It's over, guys.

We return to sleep.

I will be in Wichita.
