When Saunders first appears in the film, he is carrying a guitar and singing. The guitar is not with him when he gives his horse to Faye Denton to make her escape, but he has it back when he is at the Denton's house and sings to the family. See more »
Remarkably good, one of directors' best, great cast
This movie is surprisingly good. Director Robert North Bradbury, actor Bob Steele's father, did some of his best work here.
There is an attention to detail in this film that is missing from too many B Westerns.
The cast is top flight, with John Wayne, even this early, showing that personality that led him to become the single most popular movie star in the history of Hollywood. (Yes, even today there is no single star who has sold as many tickets.)
Al St. John, later known as "Fuzzy," plays a different kind of role, but still shows himself the champion scene stealer.
Cecilia Parker was a doll, cute, perky, with animated features that should have led her into more fame.
The stunt work shows the hand of that master, Yakima Canutt, who is also cast in a minor part.
All in all, this movie is about as much fun as any one film can be; it is more than worth watching: it is worth watching again.
