Another Solidly Entertaining Western "B" from Producer Sol Lesser
Solidly entertaining in all departments, this Dude will disappoint in only one respect. Some bloodthirsty fans may find it a little lacking in action. Mind you, there was certainly enough for me. I enjoyed the equal measures of romance, humor and mystery. True, the basic plot is a familiar one, but it's given a very classy work-out here.
Irene Hervey walks away with the picture's acting honors, closely followed by personable hero O'Brien, surly heavy Mason, and, of all people, comic sidekick Syd Saylor whom I usually can't stand! That in itself is a sure-fire indication of the top-grade entertainment qualities of script, direction and photography.
