Law and Order is a 1932 American pre-Code Western film starring Walter Huston, Harry Carey, Andy Devine, Russell Hopton and Russell Simpson. It was the first movie to depict the Gunfight at the O.K. Corral, in Tombstone, Arizona.
The film is based on the novel Saint Johnson, by W. R. Burnett. Walter Huston plays the part of lawman Frame Johnson, a fictionalized version of Wyatt Earp, and Russell Hopton plays his brother Luther Johnson. One of the best early Westerns in its character development, Law and Order features a script by John Huston, Walter's soon-to-be-famous son, and Tom Reed, who provided dialog for many movies in the 1930s and 1940s. Because of changes made during the film's production, all scenes involving the actress Lois Wilson were cut prior to the film's release.
