Jane, the school teacher, thinks that life in Coasterville is dull so she tells her pupils about the days of the Daltons Boys and the James Gang. When bank robber Kingman escapes and hides out in the school house, Jane helps him escape from town. To Hank, her intended, this is the biggest story to hit the Clarion in a long time.

A naive school teacher gets her comeuppance.
21 March 2016 | by See all my reviews

Jane Carpenter (Marguerite Churchill) plays a very young, foolish and naive school teacher. She likes to regale her students with romantic notions of the bandits of the old west--although the reality is that these folks were scum of the worst sort. Not surprisingly, some of the folks in the community are less than thrilled by this.

Later, there is a manhunt for Kingman (Ricardo Cortez)--a notorious bank robber. When he hides out at the teacher's home, her notions of romance are sorely tried! She helps him at first though she soon discovers he's not quite the dashing character she's talked about in school. Believe it or not, this crook and his gang are actually bad!!! Can this idiot somehow come out of this unscathed? Well considering the good guys want to HELP the bank (which Kingman is about to rob) by starting a bank panic, I would seriously doubt that!

Overall, this is a mildly interesting B movie with a decent anti- gangster theme. Chic Sale, as he often is in films, overacts awfully while doing his old man routine (he was only 51 but played a man considerably older in films).
