Pretty Weak Battle
15 October 2007 | by (Flushing, NY) – See all my reviews

Kit Carson is sent to escort a gold wagon train, but Cyrus Kraft (posing under the respectability of a general store owner) has his masked Mystery Riders ambush the train. Carson is led away and returns to find everyone massacred and he framed by Reynolds (a Mystery Rider) as a traitor. One other person survived the massacre and that is Matt Fargo, who hid the gold, but is now a prisoner of Kraft and his men. Kit, Nakomas, (an Indian chief whose father was murdered by Kraft's agent), and Joan Fargo (the 11 year old daughter of the prisoner who is posing as a boy - don't ask) to find Joan's father and recover the gold to clear Kit's name and expose Kraft. Noah Beery, Sr. gives probably his best serial performance here playing Kraft sneaky, clever, cunning, and ruthless, but once you get past his performance, everyone else is pretty weak, which is an improvement over the repetitive storyline and ship-shod production values. The cliffhangers contain numerous cheats or are just plain weak and there are too many recap chapters that take way too long. I have no idea why Joan kept on pretending she was a boy throughout the entire serial, but it only distracted me from the boredom of this serial. Rating, based on serials, 3.
