Pic of the Day: “The Gunfight at Dodge City” revisited

Our pic of the day takes another long-overdue look at The Gunfight at Dodge City (1959), directed by Joseph M. Newman. Don Haggerty, Timothy, and Mauritz Hugo are Dodge City’s crooked lawmen, about to get their clocks cleaned by Bat Masterson (Joel McCrea).

Hugo arrived in the U.S. from Sweden at age fifteen and established himself as a reliable character over the ensuing years, especially in Westerns. He was fortunate enough to have lost his accent along the way, freeing himself from getting typecast in “ethnic” roles.
