Fast-moving Tim McCoy western--strong characterizations
13 January 2001 | by (San Antonio, TX) – See all my reviews

Tim McCoy's 1935-36 westerns for Puritan Pictures were an above-average lot, and this is one of his best. McCoy's "mistaken identity" plot is trotted out once again, and while this could never happen in real life, it's a great movie plot device and keeps the viewer on the edge of the chair. Will the bad guys find out who time REALLY is? Classic movie villain Wheeler Oakman is perfectly cast as the slimy crime boss, and his standoffs with McCoy--featuring many close-ups as they stare each other down--remind the viewer of how good acting can elevate a genre western. Rex Lease (although not in the movie that much) is his usual charming self, and Robert McKenzie is hilarious as a bumbling attorney who is under the thumb of Oakman but tries to pretend he isn't. As always, McCoy carries himself with an almost regal manner-- he and Wild Bill Elliott were certainly the most dignified of B-Western heroes--and the unexpected ending gives depth to McCoy's character. This film is in a class of its own and should satisfy any lover of solid genre westerns of the 1930s. It would also be a fine film to introduce novices to the genre.
