How REAL men settled their differences in the Old West...

Author: planktonrules from Bradenton, Florida
10 October 2011

Tim McCoy stars in this film, though like a Rough Rider or Three Mesquiteer film, he's got company. Patrick O'Malley (not to be mistaken with J. Patrick O'Malley) and J. Carrol Naish are his sidekicks. It seems that since McCoy was framed by an evil galoot ('Tate Hurley--played by Matthew Betz), he and his two buddies have bounced around the west. Now, after begin gone from his old hometown for many years, McCoy has returned and wants to not only prove his innocence but help his ungrateful and stupid father, as Hurley owns the note on his ranch and is planning to foreclose. So how is McCoy to handle this? Yep, with a wrestling match--complete with a regulation ring. I am sure that's how ALL the cowboys settled their differences back then!!! But, things don't go quite as McCoy and his buddies plan, so they need to switch to plan B. See this for yourself to find out what happens next.

I am sure a few folks will be offended by Naish's VERY broad performance as an American-Indian named...'Injun' (wow, that took a lot of thought), but at least he was a good guy and our heroes treated him like a brother. As for the plot, it's decent but a bit predictable. Plus, I still am laughing at the whole wrestling match angle...that certainly is a first! Fun, but inconsequential.
