DIRECTED BY FRED F. SEARS
INFORMATION FROM IMDb
Pat Garrett arrives in Abilene where he catches five of Butch Cassidy's gang.
He calls in Wyatt Earp and Bat Masterson and they learn there is a half million dollar
shipment of money arriving by train and Cassidy is amassing enough men to take it.
They also realize he has tapped the telegraph line and they send a false message
saying the money is already in the Abilene bank.
But the townspeople not only refuse to fight but they release the prisoners
trying to avoid a gungight in their town.

Released after director Fred Sears' death.
Although the plot has well-known actual western figures Pat Garrett, Wyatt Earp,
Bat Masterson and Buffalo Bill fighting Butch Cassidy's gang,
in reality by the time Cassidy had gathered his now-famous Hole-in-the-Wall Gang,
Garrett was dead, Buffalo Bill was touring in his Wild West show,
Earp was prospecting for gold in Alaska and Masterson was a sportswriter
for a newspaper in New York City.
When the wounded marshal sees a gunman about to kill Buffalo Bill,
he fires his shotgun at him.
However, the sound that comes out - obviously added in during post-production
is that of a pistol.
