Goofs

Even though the story is taking place during stagecoach days, in one sequence the principals enter and leave the Bank of America, Lone Pine Branch, as it looked in 1934, with trademark BofA name and lettering on the doors and windows. See more »

[pursued by the Pinto Kid, Jethrow attempts to escape by leaping off a cliff into a deep river]
Beth Wilson: Jethrow?
Bill 'Pinto Kid' Maywood: He never came up. But I can tell you who I am now.
Beth Wilson: You don't have to - Jethrow told me. You're a Fargo man.
Bart Wilson: You never fooled me a minute. I had you figured for a detective all the long. You were so darned nosy!

Two for the price of one.
9 June 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Not the great scout of the plains but two lesser Bills here and neither of them up to much! Bill Senior is the Pinto Kid (his horse, Chico, is a pinto!),falsely accused of murdering rancher Wilson (Franklyn Farnum), and Billy Junior, Cody's real-life son, is annoying kid brother to Wilson's daughter Beth, played with considerable vacancy by Ada Ince.

Villain Wheeler Oakman hams it up with gusto and Chico answers his master's call as all wonder horses should but, overall, this really is pretty dire. Apart from an impressive name, the star has little to offer and comes across as an affable nonentity in an over-sized hat.

This is, allegedly, Cody's best film: what more can I say?
