Trivia

One of over a hundred Columbia features, mostly Westerns, sold to Hygo Television Films in the 1950s, who marketed them under the name of Gail Pictures; opening credits were redesigned, with some titles misspelled, the credit order of the players rearranged, some names misspelled, and new end titles attached, thus eliminating any evidence of their Columbia roots. Apparently, the original material was not retained in most of the cases, and the films have survived, even in the Sony library, only with these haphazardly created replacement opening and end credits.

Goofs

When the wounded sheriff Buck realizes what time it is, he knows he must hurry because Clint is due to be hanged at 5 in the morning. However, it is evident by the shadows cast by the horses as they race to rescue him, it's either late morning or early afternoon. See more »

Quotes

Sheriff Buck Gordon: [referring to his conflict with Walton,the other patrirch] Sorry, Dad, I had to keep you apart.
Dad Turner: [bitterly] Buck Gordon, you've turned against your own kind. From now on, I don't know you. You keep out of my way.

The Duke's Neck Almost Gets Stretched
1 July 2006 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Young John Wayne appears in support of Buck Jones in Range Feud as a the son and heir of a couple of feuding ranch families. Seems as though the patriarch of the other clan is shot in the back shortly after Wayne came courting on Susan Fleming who is the daughter of the deceased.

There's someone who's mighty interested in keeping a range feud going between the two families, a guy who's been rustling from both families and laying the blame on the other. It's up to the sheriff, played by Buck Jones to figure it out and prevent a miscarriage of justice.

Buck Jones had a strong screen presence and a very good speaking voice for sound. He apparently made the transition to sound with ease. This was the first time I'd ever seen one of his films and I could tell why he was a success as a cowboy hero.

Although there's not much suspense here, you pretty much figure out who's the real villain in the first few moments of the film, still for western fans it's got all the ingredients, riding, fighting, shooting, and the prerequisite ending.

And it's an opportunity to see a very callow John Wayne in support of another cowboy hero.
