Ken Maynard and Lafe McKee are both considered The Two Gun Man and both have walked in on a nice range war. Cattle baron Tom London has hired himself a whole army of gunslingers and he's aiming to bring in enough beef cattle to crowd the other small ranchers off the US government grazing land.
Of course Maynard and McKee take the side of the small ranchers, cowboy heroes always fight for the underdogs. There are two women interested in Maynard in this film, rancher's daughter Lucille Powers and saloon chanteuse Nita Martan. Guess who Maynard winds up with?
The Two Gun Man moves at a nice pace and the appropriate amount of action is there for any kid devotee of the Saturday matinée. One thing that was interesting was the senior citizen sidekick that Lafe McKee played. He's not around for laughs for the hero, he's pretty good in a pinch.
Not too bad a B western for a poverty row product.
