Be a Karloff man!
20 April 2003 | by (Vancouver, Canada) – See all my reviews

Interesting western offering a villain named Karloff. You heard me . ..Karloff! Ken Maynard is the hero, a man trying to make his ranch a success when his best friend is kidnapped for ransom by a bandit boss named Count Sergei Karloff (Georges Renevant)! The count brands all of his henchmen with the letter K and they identify themselves by saying "I'm a Karloff man!" Ken goes to mortgage his ranch to get the money to ransom his pal but the banker refuses him the loan so he does just what you or I would do in a similar situation . . .he robs the bank! His good, if misguided, intentions are too late and by the time he gets to Mexico his buddy has been executed. Now a fugitive on both sides of the border Ken decides to join Karloff's gang and get his revenge from the inside! A well done western with lots of action and suspence. The plot is never too incredible to be believed and Ken's actions have a ring of truth to them; just what a real life person might have done to save his best friend in those days. Actor George Renevant appeared opposite the real Karloff, Boris that is, in the 1936 movie THE INVISIBLE RAY. I wonder if Georges mentioned this film to Boris? No, probably not.
