Aired Again 2010 - Bad Ending (Spoiler)

I saw this movie tonight on TCM and liked it, except the ending could have been better. I understand the movie code back then required the villain always be captured or killed, but in this case he should have been captured. His death only solidified his belief. He told Colt he would show the world "how to die," and he did just that. I would have had the employees Flanigan broke through subdue him, and let him see The Great Sabastian was still alive before being taken to jail and booked for murder. That would have been true justice.
