Classic Western with great actors.
Underrated Joel McCrea

"Joel McCrea is one of Hollywood's most underrated actors. Like his contemporary with whom he is often associated, Randy Scott, he greatly enjoyed making Westerns. And he made some very good ones. While THE GUNFIGHT AT DODGE CITY doesn't rank with RIDE THE HIGH COUNTRY or perhaps with some of McCrea's earlier work with Universal-International, it is a solid and enjoyable oater which repays re-watching. It is well cast and nicely filmed. Let's hope that this release will signal additional releases of McCrea Westerns....CATTLE DRIVE, SADDLE TRAMP, BORDER RIVER, STRANGER ON HORSEBACK...."
Standard Western Worth Watching For Joel McCrea

(3 out of 5 stars)
"At a brisk 81 minutes, THE GUNFIGHT AT DODGE CITY, is an easy way to pass the time. The plot is rather predictable and there are few surprises, but Joel McCrea is such a good actor that he elevates the rather mediocre script. The titular gunfight takes place in the final five minutes of the movie, and is anti-climatic. However, there are things to enjoy in the movie, such as good character development and some well-filmed action scenes. All of the standard Western cliches are present, and the film certainly breaks no new ground as later Westertns would, but it's still worth watching at least once, especially for the underrated Joel McCrea."
