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.

The Tall Hat
25 July 2011 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

That's the first thing you notice about Tim McCoy: that's a mighty tall hat you're wearing. Doesn't it blow off in the wind? Although McCoy's MGM westerns had ended with the coming of sound, this Columbia effort, about a man who returns to restart his father's ranch on land that all the locals think belongs to Lafe McKee, moves along like an MGM effort perhaps of a year or so earlier. The compositions, lighting and set cameras are there, although there is a brief camera movement when cowboy comic Fuzzy Knight heads over to the piano.

What strikes you most about this Columbia western is that it is carefully, almost elegantly made by Otto Brower, who spent a decade turning out movies like this for Columbia, then headed to Fox as a second unit director on major projects and was moving back into the main chair on major projects when he died in 1946. The movie's pace is slow and deliberate and builds gradually to a full head of steam. A fine piece of work.
