George Hayes shines, but screechy violin playing & mediocre acting pull this one down
23 February 2000 | by (Long Island Motor Parkway) – See all my reviews

My copy uses the alternate "Trail of the Law" title, & runs 62 minutes. George Hayes (pre-"Gabby"), in a short beard & ragged clothes, is the best thing about this movie. His acting is way superior to the rest of the cast, & he uses a convincing Irish accent. Betty Mack, on the other hand, is completely unconvincing in her phony French accented character, Rose. Tom Tyler is OK as Tex & the action is also OK (two gunfights at the end are nice), but the plot is very simple. Al Bridge, as the violin playing main bad guy, is too stiff, & there is far too much screechy violin playing!
