Cowboy vs. Counterfeiters
5 May 2006 | by (Easley, South Carolina) – See all my reviews

Bill Storm (Harry Carey) is Texas Ranger who is sent to find out who has been passing counterfeit money near the border. Along the way he meets a young girl, Beverly Dix (Kathleen Collins), who exemplifies the carefree spirit of the 1920's. Although Beverly is unaware of the real purpose of Storm and the counterfeiters around her, her father is keen to what is going on. A surprising revelation toward the later part of the movie makes the story more interesting.

The pair of counterfeiters are introduced early in the film with one urging the other not to spend all of his coins because they are "real money." At the time coins were silver and many people distrusted paper money.

Harry Carey was around fifty years old when this The Border Patrol was made. His mannerisms were generally cautious and definitely not reckless. Much like William Boyd in the later Hopalong Cassidy features, Carey used wits rather than fists for most of the movie. There is some action toward the end of the movie, but it is limited. However, the action is exciting.

Although The Border Patrol is a well made movie, the film never advances toward greatness. The story stays focused, and the scene changes are logical. It is on a level with the average B westerns of the 1930's. It is not bad in any way, but not great.
