When All Else Fails Reach For the Colt 45s
23 October 2010 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Guinn Williams who would later settle into a really nice career playing amiable lunkhead sidekicks with an occasional side trip to real villainy (check out Station West and The Glass Key for that)was in his earliest years a cowboy hero. Although not for any major studios. The Law Of 45s was made for a fly by night outfit called Normandy Pictures.

While he's pushing a herd of cattle Williams and sidekick Al St. John get themselves involved in a local range war in the Pecos Valley. Lawyer Ted Adams, an old hand at villainy in B westerns kidnaps geologist Broderick O'Farrell and forces him to sign a power of attorney. Than with money that O'Farrell has to negotiate with the ranchers, Adams terrorizes the ranchers until they sell to him outright. Of course he pretends to be their friend, just taking some jinxed property off their hands.

I never thought I'd see it, but Guinn Williams actually gets the girl in the person of Molly O'Day daughter of rancher Lafe McKee. Williams did a slew of these B westerns early in his career, but seeing this was a first for me.

Takes a bit of getting used to. Still The Law Of 45s even with that novelty is your typical B western, a bit flimsier in production values than most.
