Storyline

Captain John Allister of the U.S. Cavalry catches deputy sheriff "Red'Greeley and four henchmen in the act of attacking White Feather and two other Indians.The men accuse the Indians of stealing their horses but Allister, using a ruse, proves this false. He knows the four men were planning on stealing the gold the Indians were taking to El Rio. Allister arrests the men, charges them with theft and the murder of Indians a week before, and turns then over to Sheriff Bill Ryan. Greeley gets word to gang-leader Lee Burgess, foreman of the Fernandez ranch that his men have been arrested. Ryan and Allister ride to the ranch to look over some horses for Army purchase, where the open admiration of Dolores Fernandez for Allister triggers a jealous reaction in Burgess. Back at the jail, the four prisoners escape and Greeley is suspected of complicity in their escape. Fearing an Indian uprising, Allister declares martial law and threatens the firing squad for anyone interfering with the ... Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Excellent cast in good but unevenly presented story

Just the words "Harry Carey" are usually enough for a movie to rate at least an 8, but this film has much more: Real Mexicans playing Mexicans.

And there is Kane Richmond in a less-than-admirable role.

And the excellent Ted Adams as a far-less-than-admirable character.

It's a story somewhat familiar, perhaps, but generally well presented, except for some unevenness in the story development.

Whether that's the fault of director John P. McCarthy or the fault of writer John P. McCarthy is hard to tell.

But the flaws are minor, finally, because of the cast and story and setting, a not too usual setting for the story of conflict and romance and greed and alcohol.

Perhaps more even than Harry Carey, the actor to watch here is George F. Hayes, who essays an Irish accent that is one of the best. It is subtle, not the stage blarney-shillelagh-whisky Irishman that is sometimes funny just not very realistic. (IMDb's spell checker tried to tell me "whisky" should be "whiskey," but, sorry, not in Ireland.)

Even later, when George F. Hayes became "Gabby" Hayes, he was still one of the very best B Western actors -- and that means movie actors -- we have been fortunate to watch.

And watch is the thing to do. I recommend "Cavalier of the West," for its scope, its cast, and its entertainment value. Its available at YouTube, compliments of that great friend of mankind, Westerns on the Web.
