Different kind of B Western is a lot of fun

Bob Steele became a superlative actor; George Hayes always was, even before he became the lovable "Gabby."

Dorothy Dix was a lovely woman, and a capable actress, but quit movies about five years after making "The Nevada Buckaroo."

Those three and the rest of the very good cast had some excellent dialog in a far above average script.

The director, John P. McCarthy, of whom I know nothing else, did a masterful job. The last shot, of Buck, the Nevada Kid, riding into the proverbial sunset, was absolutely beautiful.

Unfortunately, I saw this in a pretty bad print at YouTube, and I guess I am juxtaposing a bit to praise it as highly as I do. But the quality shines through even the mediocre print.

I recommend "The Nevada Buckaroo," but hope you can see a better version. Do see it, though, for a reminder of what high-quality a film even though low-budget a B western can be.
