Abilene Town (1946)
Directed by Edwin L. Marin
Cast: Randolph Scott, Ann Dvorak and Edgar Buchanan
In the years following the Civil War, the town of Abilene, Kansas is poised on the brink of an explosive confrontation. A line has been drawn down the center of the town where the homesteaders and the cattlemen have come to a very uneasy truce. The delicate peace is inadvertently shattered when a group of new homesteaders lay down their stakes on the cattlemen’s side of town, upsetting the delicate balance that had existed thus far and sparking an all-out war between the farmers, who want the land tamed and property lines drawn, and the cowboys , who want the prairies to be open for their cattle to roam.
Actors: Edgar Buchanan, Ann Dvorak, Randolph Scott
