Synopsis 1:
Old man Clanton decrees that Wyatt Earp must die. Fearful of a
showdown in Tombstone, the Clantons hatch a plot to draw Wyatt
out into the open. [RF]
Synopsis 2:
Wyatt Earp had managed to stay alive in Wichita, Dodge City and
Tombstone because he was more intelligent than the gunslingers,
outlaws and hoodlums who hated him. But Old Man Clanton, who
controlled Cochise County, Arizona, had never really worked at
the job of killing him. To slay a John Law, even in Arizona
Territory, was a last resort which sensible hoodlums shrank from.
Marshal Earp, however, had become an intolerable menace to the
Clantons and the Ten Percent Ring in Tucson. The time had come
to kill Wyatt Earp and Clanton had no intention of failing. [TVL]
