The third remake of 1932's stark and sobering LAW AND ORDER, here starring Ronald Reagan, is a budget-minded and tired tale of a marshal who straps on his gunbelt after planning to retire. He puts off his plan to leave Tombstone with his saloon-keeper fiancee when the citizens ask him to
rid their town of Foster's despicable gang. Reagan is a success, doing in the outlaws and then retiring with wife Malone. Little remains of the bleakness involved in the cleaning up of the old Wild West that made the 1932 version so memorable.
