Synopsis for “The Man Who Came Back from Boot Hill!”
When the Gunner gang attempts to rob a stagecoach carrying a payroll, they find opposition from it’s lone passenger: law man Wyatt Earp. While the marshal manages to stop them from robbing the payroll, he is unable to stop them from escaping. Back at their hideout, Gunner tells his men how they are going to rob a shipment of gold heading out of Tombstone later that day, but not before eliminating Wyatt Earp first.
Three days later while Wyatt is out on patrol, he is jumped by Gunner and his gang who take him to their cabin hideout. There they tie Wyatt to a chair and Gunner explains how he is going to blow him up with explosives. When Gunner asks if Wyatt has any last requests, the famous lawman asks for a glass of water. Gunner throws it in Wyatt’s face then lights the fuse and leaves the house with his gang. Soon the cabin explodes and Wyatt is seemingly killed. After reading the headlines of Wyatt’s death in the newspaper, Gunner and his men attempt to rob the gold shipment thinking that there is nobody who can stop them.
However they are shocked when Wyatt Earp gets the drop on them and takes them into custody. Earp then explains to Gunner that when he asked for the glass of water and had it thrown in his face, he kept his mouth open and collected some of the water in his mouth. When the outlaws left him to be blown up, Wyatt spat the water on the fuse of the explosives. While it did not put the fuse completely out, it slowed it enough for Wyatt to smash the back window and use the broken shards of glass to cut himself loose and escape before the explosives went off.
