Classic western starring Gary Cooper and directed by Cecil B. DeMille. Cooper plays legendary gunman Wild Bill Hickok, battling to prevent an Indian uprising that has been fomented by unscrupulous white gun-runners in a period of immense change for the Old West. Teaming up with his lover Calamity Jane (Jean Arthur), as well as Buffalo Bill Cody (James Ellison), Hickok helps to pacify the frontier. At the same time, behind the scenes, we see the political decisions undertaken by President Lincoln (Frank McGlynn Snr) that gradually shape the American frontier in the period after the Civil War.

Contains very mild violence and one scene of mild horror
