Don't call him a hamburger!

In Law of The 45's. Squinty eyed Tucson Smith and his sidekick Stoney try to figure out who is trying to hustle all the ranchers land and why. All signs point to the greedy slimy mustachioed lawyer (of course) Rentel. This was not bad, although really pedestrian. Big Boy Williams (yes, that is the actor's name) is pretty good as the hero here, although one questions what kind of an aim he has with that kind of gun handling. Al St. John does his usual sidekick role with great aplomb, and Ted Adams plays his limited role to the best of all his abilities. This was good, not great.

By the way, twice they alluded to the Law of The 45's, but never bothered to explain what exactly it is.
