Title: Masterson of Kansas (1954)

Garfield is right in pointing out Griffith's performance as Doc Holliday as notable: contender as one of the best ever. Still he's wrong defining Masterson's figure here as "comic book superhero": can't see anything different from usual western hero fare. The plot hangs on a spit (all the shenenigan about a false witness) but it is fast paced and it has at least a good scene (the aborted duel at the start) so it's worth watching once: 6/10.
