Intriguing, action-packed early sound Western!
19 November 2000 | by See all my reviews

It's easy to see why Bob Steele was among the top cowboy stars of the 1930s and 40s. With his cheerful personality, he is totally at ease with the new medium of sound, singing a mean tune, performing his own stunts and romancing the ladies between fist fights. The unique plot line of one of his first sound films has Steele on the lam from the law, heading south towards the Mexican border with Al "Fuzzy" St. John. As they stop at a friendly saloon, they find the piano roll playing... and everyone dead inside. "Fuzzy" exclaims, "Let's clear outta here, before they blame this on us!" Thus the wheels are set in motion for a crackerjack Western adventure.
