Lawman Wyatt Earp is itching to get the heck out of Dodge City in this sneak peek from AMC’s The American West (airing Saturday at 10/9c).
Spanning the years 1865 to 1890, the Robert Redford-produced limited series has been revisiting how — in the aftermath of the Civil War — the United States transformed into the “land of opportunity,” while sharing the personal, little-known stories of Western legends. In the sixth of eight episodes, Billy the Kid seeks revenge for the death of his friend and Jesse James reemerges from years in hiding, while Earp, as shown above, questions his future as a lawman.
The American West also features exclusive interviews with notable names from classic Western films, including Redford, James Caan, Burt Reynolds, Kiefer Sutherland, Mark Harmon, Ed Harris and — in the clip above — Tom Selleck (who long before he laid down the law in New York starred in the 1990 Australian Western Quigley Down Under).
