Standard Bob Steele Quality
19 July 2006 | by (Easley, South Carolina) – See all my reviews

In the context of early 30's Bob Steele movies Law of the West is neither Steele's best nor worst. Capable as an actor and excellent as an action hero, Bob Steele was able to give a solid performance in any role he was given.

In Law of the West Steele portrays a young man who believes he is the son of a cattle rustler named Morgan. In retaliation for being caught rustling by Dan Carruthers, Lee Morgan had kidnapped Carruthers' son, Bob, and raised Bob to believe he was his own son. Believing this, young Bob never hit his father out of respect despite the beatings he received. Bob's real father, Dan Carruthers, became a marshal with the intention of one day finding his son and the man who kidnapped him. Both Carruthers and Bob are known for being fast with a gun, and Morgan's plan is to make Bob kill Carruthers as an evil, ironic method of revenge.

This movie is more story driven than a gratuitous showcase of chase scenes and gunfights. While it may have many common elements of B westerns, Law of the West is able to stand up on its own. Even if this were not a western, the plot would work in other contexts.
