Synopsis for “Law of the Six-Gun!”
1874: Wyatt Earp rides into Wichita, Kansas to find that it is more lawless than ever with Texas cowboys running wild all over. When a cowboy shooting at another bumps into Wyatt’s horse as he rides into town, the cowboy tries to pick a fight with Earp, who beats him into submission and has him tell where the nearest coral is. He is directed to the coral owned by Doc Black, who is beating on his stable boy as a crowd of townspeople watch. Disgusted by the sight, Wyatt cuts through the crowd and beats Black senseless. Angered by this, Doc Black goes and gets the sheriff and has him arrest Earp for assault. Not liking to do so, the sheriff agrees to take Earp into custody but promises him that the charge isn’t going to stick.
Knowing this as well, Doc goes to the local saloon and rallies a bunch of the Texas cowboys, convincing them that Earp killed the Thomas brothers in Ellsworth. With a mob of cowboys approaching the small jail house where Wyatt is being kept, the sheriff leaves Wyatt with guns while he goes to fetch some help. Wyatt hides outside of the shack, and when the cowboys burst in, he goes in after them and shoots the guns out of their hands and holds them all at bay until the sheriff arrives with a posse. Liking the type of work that Wyatt has done, Mayor Jim Hope gives Wyatt the job of US Marshal in town.
