The Best of the Old West is a rollicking tale of frontier justice. Set in the period just before the American Civil War, the story follows one lawman's quest for justice across the breadth of a new nation. This period is little-known for anything except the details of the war. What is rarely shown, though, is the vibrancy of a young nation just coming into its prime. The story is a lavish illustration of that pulsing life, contrasting the stark reality of the frontier with the elegance and society of the settled East. Set against this panorama is a story of love, duty, adventure and romance which speaks to anyone who has ever been in love, or is still hoping to find it.
