The Woman of the Town
The Woman of the Town ★★½ 1944
Frontier marshal and newspaperman Bat Masterson is portrayed convincingly by Dekker as a very human hero who seeks justice when the woman he loves, a dance hall girl who works in the town for social causes, is killed by an unscrupulous rancher. Fictionalized but realistic western shows “heroes” as good, ordinary people. 90m/B VHS . Claire Trevor, Albert Dekker, Barry Sullivan, Henry Hull, Porter Hall, Percy Kilbride; D: George Archainbaud; M: Miklos Rozsa.
