Ken Maynard makes his hesitant move from the bad side to the good side of the law in this superior B Western.
Maynard and sidekick Lloyd Ingraham -- whose long movie career had already included being a director for D.W. Griffith in the Teens -- are clearly good actors. Leading lady Sheila Bromley is not so good as she might be. Director Phil Rosen, who started as a cinematographer in the silent era and would keep his head down directing B pictures for most of the sound era, directs well, but he always remained a visual director and some of supporting cast are pretty poor in their line readings. However, the sturdy plot of the Good Bad Man, introduced and honed over the decades and Maynard's fine screen presence make this one worth watching.
