Trivia:
The failure of the original copyright holder to renew the film's copyright resulted in it falling into public domain, meaning that virtually anyone could duplicate and sell a VHS/DVD copy of the film. Therefore, many of the versions of this film available on the market are either severely (and usually badly) edited and/or of extremely poor quality, having been duped from second- or third-generation (or more) copies of the film.See more »
Goofs:
Errors made by characters (possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): During a fight between Ted Hayden and Butch, Spuds shouts, "Come on, Ted!" Actually, Ted has been introduced to him and all others at the gangsters' hide-out as Gat Ganns. His real identity is in fact revealed later.See more »

Okay Entertainment, 6 December 2009
Author: FightingWesterner from The Lonesome Prairie

John Wayne and George Hayes come back to the place where Wayne spent his childhood in order to find out who killed his father and what became of his baby brother twelve years earlier. Wayne and Hayes then go undercover to stop a group of ranch thieves.

There's a few good scenes and a decent climax in this entry in Wayne's Lone Star western series but mostly this is middle of the road entertainment with a bit too much talking and not enough action this time around.

However, this does have some better-than-usual acting for the series. Duke and Gabby's performances are also quite likable, as is the actor that played Wayne's young friend.
