Abilene Town Overview:
Abilene Town (1946) was a Western - Romance Film directed by Edwin L. Marin and produced by Herbert J. Biberman and Jules Levey.
Pioneer town Abilene, Kansas, is the setting in which tensions between long-settled cattle ranchers and new homesteaders play out. Abilene sits at the tail of a livestock path that stretches all the way to Texas. Its inhabitants include a dipsomaniac sheriff, a true-hearted dance-hall girl, a sweet shopkeeper, a dangerously alluring barmaid, and a two-fisted town marshal. The community-at-large is split in half between those who want this place to stay a rowdy frontier town and those who yearn to change it into a tranquil place where they can raise a family. Based on the novel Trail Town by Ernest Haycox.
