This suspenseful courtroom drama is based on the actual historical trial of Jack McCall, who shot James Butler Hickok from that most dishonorable position—behind. No one paid any mind to Jack McCall as he unloaded a .44 caliber slug into Wild Bill Hickok’s brain at point-blank range. Deadwood’s legendary gunslinging marshal was dead, holding a poker hand of aces and eights, a dead man’s hand. The question the law wanted to know: was McCall a hired killer or did he kill Hickok to avenge his brother’s death?
