Could Have Been A Classic
24 June 2010 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

No doubt in my mind that Law Of The West was rushed quickly into production to take advantage of the notoriety regarding the coverage of the Lindbergh Kidnapping. Throughout the Thirties kidnapping stories used as plot themes because of that tragedy.

Bob Steele was 25 when he made Law Of The West in which he plays a young outlaw with a past. When he was just a toddler outlaw Ed Brady snatched him in retaliation for Steele's real father Hank Bell killing his son during a shootout with the gang. Brady raises the kid who grows up to be Steele with a real hatred because he plans that eventually he plans what he considers a just revenge.

This was an interesting theme for a B western, a revenge tale worthy of Shylock, Richard III, or Iago. Probably had this gotten an A picture treatment this could have been a classic.

As it is it's just one of hundreds of films that exploited the Lindbergh kidnapping.
