It's always the bank manager!!!
10 October 2009 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Reliable Pictures were a poverty row company that specialised in low budget Westerns churned out for the Saturday matinée brigade.

Tom Talbot (Tom Tyler) rides into town to look up his sweetheart, Peggy (Alberta Vaughn). He had left six months before, to show her father he could make good and he did - but he then bet all the money he had on a horse race and lost!! He makes himself scarce when Peggy's dad rides up but her dad has bad news - they are about to lose their ranch. He owes the bank $1,000 and the bank manager won't budge - he has a mystery buyer for the ranch. Tom rides into town - into the middle of a bank hold-up. Everyone identifies Tom as part of the gang and after a chase he is captured and imprisoned. Peggy promises to help him find justice

  • and makes a shocking discovery (if you have never seen a Western


oater before) that the bank manager is behind the hold up!!! On the work gang Tom finds an old friend Shorty ("Snub" Pollard) who tells him that one of the prisoners was bragging that Tom wasn't even in on the robbery.

There was certainly not as much action as a Lone Star western - although there was a good fight at the end where the inside of the cabin was almost demolished. Which was surprising because Tom Tyler was built for action. He had a variety of jobs (including a lumber jack) before becoming an actor and with his physique he was a natural for westerns. It must have been old home week for "Snub" Pollard and Alberta Vaughn, both of whom were more at home in comedy shorts. This was also Alberta's next to last film.
