In 1882, sharp-shooting marshal Frame Johnson (Ronald Reagan) apprehends notorious outlaw The Durango Kid and brings him back to Tombstone, Arizona for a fair trial. The whole town, including Frame s two younger brothers, Luther and hot-headed Jimmy, heralds the two men s arrival. Although Frame and the law and order he has brought to Tombstone are widely respected, an angry mob quickly forms around the jail to lynch The Kid. Facing them alone, Frame threatens to shoot anyone who enters the jail.

Later, Frame tells Jimmy that he is tired of giving people something they do not appreciate, and that they are leaving town. Frame visits his girlfriend Jeannie (Dorothy Malone), he informs her that he has given up marshalling for a ranch in Cottonwood, where they can marry and settle down. When they arrive at the Cottonwood saloon the next evening, their entrance is noted by local rancher Kurt Durling, whose hand Frame shot off in a cattle rustling raid. Durling, who now runs Cottonwood, vows revenge.

It looks like he may have to clean up Cottonwood too. But how great a sacrifice will he make for law and order?

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Officially released from Universal this is a splendid DVD. Excellent colour, picture and sound, in 4.3 Ratio, with a lovely cover. A kind of remake of the classic 1932 film, this stands up very well, mainly thanks to Ronald Reagan, perhaps the most "forgotten" western actor of them all. Here he exudes strength, and tenderness in a role Wayne would have done in his sleep. As Frame Johnson, Marshall of Tombstone, he tires of the responsibilites and lack of thanks, and asking Doroyhy Malone as his g/f to wait, he and his brothers, Alex Nichol and Russell Johnson head off to a ranch in Cottonwood. Sadly in Cottonwood there resides the Big boss..Kurt Durling (an excellent Preston Foster) and his family (Dennis Weaver in a good villain role, and a very early appearence from a manically overacting Don Gordon). There is a daughter played rather badly, tho she looks good, by Ruth Hampton. Obviously all sorts of problems and violence arise, until the rather anti climatic ending (shades of Winchester 73). A superb support cast which will have every fan going mad trying to put names to faces (Lane Bradford/Mike Ragan/Tris Coffin/Gregg Barton/boyd Morgan/Kermit Maynard/Tom Brown Henry/William Tannen/Jack Ingram/Kenneth MacDonald/Barry Kelly/ and a young almost unrecognisable Jack Kelly. Plenty of good solid western action, some hefty (if incredible) fist fights and only 80' long. A must for Western lovers. Highly recomended and a decent price.

This is the perfect little Western, with Ronald Raegan giving an excellent performance. He was a much better actor than I realised, and here he displays a lot of gravitas and good humour. Dorothy Malone looks wonderful and smoulders as only she can, while Alex Nicol also looks great and turns in a good performance, but he doesn't get nearly enough to do.

First made in 1932 starring Walter Huston and Harry Carey the story was an adaptation of W R Burnett's hard-hitting western novel about the fictionalised clean up of Tombstone loosely based on the Wyatt Earp legend. This 70 minute film was highly regarded in its day! The second version made in 1940 starred Johnny Mack Brown, James Craig and Fuzzy Knight this was a loose remake of the above with a shorter running time. This 80 minute 1953 remake this time in Technicolor, closely follows the original 1932 version. Starring Ronald Reagan, Alex Nichol, Preston Foster, Dennis Weaver and Dorothy Malone.

Hard-hitting peace keeper Frame Johnson (Ronald Reagan) is marshal of Tombstone and has just brought in a prisoner the infamous 'Durango Kid' (Wally Cassell). When a group of angry townsmen try to lynch him without a trial. Disappointed with the lack of support from towns folk apart from saloon owner Jeanie (Dorothy Malone) he decide to pack up and take up ranching on a spread he had purchased near the town of Cottonwood. Once again he turned down the chance to become 'town tamer' but his brother Lute (Alex Nichol) took up the challenge in his stead but was tricked into a rigged gun fight and got himself shot by Frank Durling (Dennis Weaver) younger brother of local trouble maker Kurt Durling (Preston Foster). Meanwhile Frame's younger brother Jimmy (Russell Johnson) has fallen for Durling's sister Maria (Ruth Hampton). Foster and Weaver catch Jimmy in a compromising position with their sister Weaver gets shot in self defence and Jimmy is framed for murder Leaving only Frame to set out and restore Law and Order

Half of the female love interest is provided by brunette Dorothy Malone before her transformation to blonde in the mid-fifties.

Solid, Entertaining 50's Western 9 July 2004
By Erik Rupp - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Law and Order is a solid, entertaining western that showcases Ronald Reagan as a leading man. Reagan gives an almost John Wayne-esque performance (you could almost call him John Wayne Light in this one). Reagan is tough, but very likeable in the role and shows the charisma that would help him in his political life just a decade later.

The story itself is something of a re-working of the Earps VS the Clantons, and it even starts in Tombstone. Reagan is Frame Johnson, tough, no-nonsense Marshall of Tombstone. He decides to retire to a nearby town to start a ranch and marry his girl, but he finds the town run by another rancher and soon Frame and his brothers are in conflict with that rancher and his family. There is plenty of good western action, and a solid story in Law and Order.

Law and Order is well worth buying for Western fans or fans of Ronald Reagan.

An enjoyable vehicle for Western buffs... 8 Nov 2006
By Roberto Frangie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
'Law and Order' is hardly a rich strike, and might be considered as a solid, conventional Western of 'retired gunfighter' breed...

Frame Johnson (Reagan) is a respected lawman who has cleaned up the wicked ways of Tombstone, Arizona, and wants to retire to the life of a rancher... This pleases his fiancée, Jeannie (Dorothy Malone), who runs the saloon left to her by her father... She, too, is eager to leave the rough community and be her beau's wife: 'You're big and you're ugly and you're stupid, and I happen to be in love with you.'

With his brothers, Lute (Alex Nicol) and Jimmy (Russell Johnson), and their undertaker friend, Denver (Chubby Johnson), Frame proceeds to the town of Cottonwood... Unfortunately, Cottonwood is under the domination of Kurt Durning (Preston Foster), who hates Frame because he crippled him in a previous encounter...

The citizens of Cottonwood appeal to the famous marshal to take up the badge of law and order once again, and rid them of Durning... Frame declines, but Lute accepts, which soon costs him his life when he tries to apprehend one of Durning's sons...

Frame takes the job as marshal and brings the Durning empire to an end...

I love Ronald Reagan Western 31 Jan 2010
By Takehito Higashizawa - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I am enjoying the old American westerns of '50s and '60s,thanks mainly for the stronger yen, I am now reaching for the Amazon's US Western market, because sometimes Japanese market lacks very important titles, and this is one of them.
I reckon, The Universal Japan should have issued this Law and Order in@Japanese subtitles, but so far they failed to do so. Talking Westerns, you must not miss this title, it's one of the few Mr. President's Westerns in his younger days, I think. Oh, I don't share this title with other Japanese enthusiasts, this will be one of my seacret treasured titles. A Western enhusiast.

Half of the female love interest is provided by brunette Dorothy Malone before her transformation to blonde in the mid-fifties. Newcomer Ruth Hampton proved the other half! The so called 'Durango Kid' in this film I assume has no relationship to the one played by the athletic Charles Starrett in his famous DURANGO Kid Series of the 1940s and early 50s. Arriving in Cottonwood Frame Johnson meets the local judge in the Land Office, in one shot over Reagan's shoulder can be clearly seen a portrait of Abraham Lincoln the 16th President of the United States of America, how ironic was that? 42 year-old Ronald Reagan at the time of this movie was President of the Screen Actors Guild and moving into mainline politics he became Governor of California in 1966. In 1970 he was elected as the 40th President of the United States of America, surviving a assassination attempt early in his presidency, he went on to serve two full terms. Not bad for a 'B' movie cowboy actor!
