‘Dodge City’ Movie Summary
Dodge City begins with Colonel Dodge arriving to town on his new railroad line which links the frontier village to the East Coast. Fast forward two years, and Dodge City is now the longhorn capital of the world. Besides settlers though, the town attracts seedy men, outright thieves, and cold-blooded killers.
Jeff Surett leads a gang of such men out to control the town. They stop at nothing to swindle legitimate people out of their money, and either kill or run out of town any new sheriff.
Wade Hatton is an Irish cowboy who helped the Colonel bring the railroad to Dodge City. Now, he leads a herd of settlers to town from the East coast. Rusty and Tex, Hatton’s trusted companions who’ve stuck with him over the years, ride with him as well as many other loyal men.
Abbie Irving and her alcoholic brother, Lee, are among the settlers, but Lee dies after he causes a stampede, and the cattle trample him to death; leaving Abbie to fend for herself.Read the full summary
