One of over a hundred Columbia features, mostly Westerns, sold to Hygo Television Films in the 1950s, who marketed them under the name of Gail Pictures; opening credits were redesigned, with some titles misspelled, the credit order of the players rearranged, some names misspelled, and new end titles attached, thus eliminating any evidence of their Columbia roots. Apparently, the original material was not retained in most of the cases, and the films have survived, even in the Sony library, only with these haphazardly created replacement opening and end credits.

One of the greatest silent film cowboys was the always heroic Colonel Tim McCoy. His career in talkies was never as big, but he was always one of the best ..... as can be seen here. A Range War breaks out between ranchers and "nesters", with McCoy stuck in the middle, undercover !
Tim McCoy was likable, yet tough and always owned the screen in any scene he appeared in. This film is actionful and a fairly realistic portrayal of range conflict.
Even folks not normally fans of 1930's films should enjoy this one........ Definitely recommended !
