Dark Command 1940
Based on W. R. Burnett's novel, a Texan becomes marshal in Kansas and defends against plundering raiders during the Civil War while falling in love.

Wayne plays Bob Seton, a Lawrence, Kansas cowboy who is rather unexpectedly elected to the office of town marshal. The loser in the election, an ambitious schoolteacher named Will Cantrell (Walter Pidgeon), is outraged that an uneducated man like Seton could defeat him. Then, to make matters worse, Seton starts falling for a woman named Mary McCloud (Claire Trevor), who Cantrell also loves. When Mary's brother (Roy Rogers) is tried for murder at Seton's behest, Cantrell sets into motion a series of events that result in much bloodshed.
