Randloph Scott Finds Love While Killing Buffalo!
12 April 2010 | by (The Lonesome Prairie) – See all my reviews

Randolph Scott, Harry Carey, and Raymond Hatton trade buffalo hides and fend off bandits led Noah Beery, his fiancé's lecherous stepfather. Shot and left for dead when he comes for his bride, Scott wanders around with his partners, looking for a chance to claim his girl and running afoul of Indians upset at the decimation of the buffalo.

Though not as satisfying as some other entries in Paramount's Zane Grey series, it's still pretty decent with a great cast, excellent production values (for a B-western), and a fairly engaging, though somewhat darker than usual script.

One problem though, is that third-billed Buster Crabbe appears only briefly near the beginning of the film and disappears for the duration of the movie. They should have found some room for him!
