The Law West of Tombstone is a 1938 Western film. It was an early Western for Tim Holt.
Tim Holt was borrowed by RKO from Walter Wanger to play the Tonto Kid. He would soon star in a series of Westerns for the studio.
Anne Shirley and Harry Carey were also borrowed from Wanger. However Shirley refused to play the role and was suspended.
Author Tom Stempel called the film " one of the more haphazard movies of the time" in which "Carey plays a combination of Buffalo Bill, Judge Roy Bean, and Pat Garrett, with a young Holt playing a version of Billy the Kid. Holt seems right at home in westerns."
A Judge Roy Bean figure dispenses justice in Arizona. He teams up with the Tonto Kid to fight the McQuinn gang.
