What's a lady like you doing in a place like this?

Dodge City, Kansas was tamed by Bat Masterson once, and after he retired from being a lawman he became a newspaper man. When a gun collector asks the elderly Bat Masterson if he can purchase the gun that he used to clean up Dodge City, Masterson tells him that he buried that gun years ago on boot hill on top of a casket. Next we flash back to watch that story, and the last gunfight of Bat Masterson. Years have passed since Bat Masterson cleaned up Dodge City, and he has returned to get a job as a newspaper reporter. Upon reaching Dodge City and finding the newspaper editor in the local honkey tonk he watches the current Sheriff get gunned down by a card cheat, and in turn an older Bat Masterson shoots the Sheriff's killer. When the town folk discover that it is old Bat Masterson they insist that he become Sheriff again and clean up Dodge City one more time. There is one more newcomer to Dodge City on this day, and it is sweet and beautiful Dora Hand, played by Claire Trevor. She meets Bat Masterson in church the next morning where she sings an angelic song while the collection plate is being passed around. There is instant chemistry between Bat Masterson and the girl, but there will be another man in her life, and more surprises to come. Sweet Dora is not only a church going girl, but the newest addition to the singing dance hall girls at the local honky tonk. When Bat Masterson sees sweet Dora in her dancing outfit in the Honkey Tonk he, and the rest of the town, figure that she is a no-good gold-digging 'woman of the town.' The church ladies even want her exiled from the church, but it turns out that she really is an angel in disguise, helping the poor with the money she earns as a dance hall girl. When King Kennedy, the richest rancher in Texas comes into town with his rowdy cowhands to shoot up the town and have their fun, it is Dora, the woman of the town who keeps the peace between Sheriff Bat Masterson and shooting cowboy King Kennedy. It looks like there is a new Sheriff in town, and her name is Dora. Ahhh, but don't get the idea too soon that this will not be a rough and tough cowboy shoot-to-kill adventure, because there are some things that even a smart and pretty woman cannot do. When push comes to shove and Bat Masterson and King Kennedy come to blows over the love of Dora, only guns, a wild shoot-out that promises to tear up the town, and death in Dodge City will be able to even the score. Be warned, cowpokes, because gunfights in Dodge City don't always turn out as one might wish, and boot hill will have more residents soon . . . so pop a big bowl of popcorn already and drizzle warm melted butter on it and enjoy the show.
