Trivia

One of over a hundred Columbia features, mostly Westerns, sold to Hygo Television Films in the 1950s, who marketed them under the name of Gail Pictures; opening credits were redesigned, with some titles misspelled, the credit order of the players rearranged, some names misspelled, and new end titles attached, thus eliminating any evidence of their Columbia roots. Apparently, the original material was not retained in most of the cases, and the films have survived, even in the Sony library, only with these haphazardly created replacement opening and end credits.

Fine Buck Jones B Western
10 May 2015 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

There's quite a bit going on in this solid Buck Jones B western. Jones plays White Eagle, a half-Indian Pony Express rider who rescues pretty Barbara Weeks from a puma. Meanwhile Robert Ellis and henchman Ward Bond are buying horses with fake government warrants and convincing the folks of Virginia City it's Indian by taking out stage coaches, filling them with arrows and scalping the occasional victim -- the last is Bond's idea.

Old hand Lambert Hillyer directs well from a good script and budget (he had got his start with William Hart and so knew how a Western should go) and L. William O'Connell's camera work is quite lovely -- the copy I watched today on GetTV was a fine, clear print. It's not a deep movie, but for an hour's light entertainment, it's certainly enjoyable.
