I enjoyed this. The acting and characters are wonderful. Gary Cooper and Walter Brennan work great together!
written on-screen after the credits:
After the Civil War, America, in the throes of rebirth, set its face West where the land was free.
First came the cattlemen and with them "Judge" Roy Bean, who took the law into his own hands, administering justice according to his lights. That he left his impress on the history of Texas is tribute to his greatness. Then into his stronghold moved another army, the homesteaders, who ploughed the soil, fenced the fields, to bring security to their wives and children.
War was inevitable, a war out of which grew the Texas of today.
