Great cast, great script

RKO doesn't get the high praise for its westerns that, for example, Paramount does, but its Tom Keene series deserves very high marks.

"Renegades" is an excellent film, with a superb cast, remarkably good dialogue, and even music directed by Max Steiner, later to win much fame for "Gone With The Wind" and "King Kong," among many others. (He didn't write much for this series, but placed the music well and appropriately.)

Tom Keene was a good actor who should have gone on to more fame and glory.

The script writers didn't just quickly throw together a bunch of clichés.

The directing was good -- in fact, it was by Casey Robinson, more famed as a scriptwriter of several classic movies, such as "Casablanca" and "Kings Row."

The entire cast was likable and talented. I hope all western fans get to see this one -- in fact, I hope all movie fans will see it.
