Tom Tyler & Bad Script = Okay Western
Its unfortunate that Tyler was saddled with such a riddled-with holes script that strains one's belief. One move after another makes no sense - and Tyler was no great actor - making it even harder to rouse that suspension of disbelief. Oh well, its only a 1930s western, full of action, good for the kids' Saturday afternoon at the movies. The very attractive female lead Jeanne Martel (Molly Bates) may not have been a great actress, but she was cute as a boot and married Tyler in 1937. The much experienced film villains include Richard Kramer (Stanton), Slim Whitaker (One-Shot Morgan), Chas. King (Steve Denton) and other uncredited actors. Perennial villain Earle Dwire (Tibbets) has a go on the other side of the fence as the feisty leader of the rancher's. The bad guys carry the film, but Tyler gets the girl - that's Hollywood for you.
