And Again and Again
Okay typical western from the 1930s - good guy infiltrates the group of bad guys and takes care of business. However, atypical in that there is no love interest and no stupid sidekick and, thankfully, not as much riding back and forth as usual.

Gotta Love That Hat
Spuzz, you sidewinding! What for you are picking on Carson, that is not nice. I am thinking you are being green with the ivy, no?
There's at least one other Carson film on this site, and they're both just as cute as can be. Loved it!

Col. Tim McCoy
Tim McCoy was billed as "Colonel Tim McCoy" because he was an actual Col. in the US Cavalary, as well as being an expert in Indian lore.
He had been an Indian interpreter who helped collect oral histories of the Sioux and Cheyenne participants in the Battle of The Little Bighorn.

Will the real Mccoy please stand up?
Tim Mccoy, who, for some odd reason is listed as Â¡Â°Colonel Tim MccoyÂ¡Â¯ in the credits, as if that would make him sound more courageous sounding, (It actually sounds more ridiculous) Â¡Â°returnsÂ¡Â± (where did he go?) in Lighting Carson Strikes Again. In this movie, he must try to find out who framed his brother for a robbery and murder he did not commit. Well, thatÂ¡Â¯s the first half of the movie. The brother seems to dissapear after the first half (off to L.A. from what I can tell) and then Carson seeks to infiltrate the group to try to stop any future holdups from the gang. This involves him, yes, dressing like a Mexican and sort of talking like a Mexican, cutely switching his words from time to time. How the cowboys, who must have some dealings with Mexicans, let this pass IÂ¡Â¯ll never know. Anyways, Mccoy still canÂ¡Â¯t shoot properly, still has the biggest cowboy hat youÂ¡Â¯ll ever see and still looks that silly way whenever he looks pissed. This was an ok time-waster.

Old fashioned meller
This is definitely light viewing. It's an old fashioned Western set in 1930s California. Lightning Bill Carson is after the black hats disguised as a Mexican no good. He's soon hanging out with the baddies at Hogan's Saloon and turning the tables. He soon finds the money, but what he wants is the man behind it all.
The action is a bit choppy, and some may find the portrayal of the Anglos ethnically offensive. Still, the story moves, it hangs together and the scenery is great, modulo the video codec.
