Will Mannon, brutal and sadistic, comes to Dodge City planning to kill Matt Dillon and cement his fearsome reputation.

He intimidates Dodge City residents, claiming to hold four aces in a poker game with the other players afraid to see his actual hand. Finally, he assaults Kitty. Finally, Matt returns to Dodge to confront the brutal Mannon. Written by Bill Koenig

Mannon and Miss Kitty chemistry
3 July 2019 | by cindygtaylorSee all my reviews

Mannon and Miss Kitty have more chemistry than Matt and Miss Kitty! Their scenes together sizzle. One of my favorite Steve Forrest roles. So ruggedly handsome.
