Trivia

This film is one of over 200 titles in the list of independent feature films made available for television presentation by Advance Television Pictures announced in Motion Picture Herald 4 April 1942. At this time, television broadcasting was in its infancy, almost totally curtailed by the advent of World War II, and would not continue to develop until 1945-1946. Because of poor documentation (feature films were often not identified by title in conventional sources) no record has yet been found of its initial television broadcast. Re-titled The Lady from Frisco, its earliest documented telecasts took place in New York City Monday 11 October 1948 on WCBS (Channel 2), and in Lowell MA (serving the Boston Area) Saaturday 18 December 1948 on WBZ (Channel 4).

Mission to the president
16 April 2016 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

A forgotten B western for a fly by night poverty row outfit Rebellion is only worth remembering for being a film that had a future movie legend in the female lead. Rita Cansino later Rita Hayworth is on a mission to President Zachary Taylor to get justice for her people, the former Mexican citizens who are being exploited by ruthless Americans come over into California. Hayworth's brother Duncan Renaldo the future Cisco Kid plays the brother and now 'outlaw' leader.

Taylor is as good as his word, he sends a soldier, his personal military aide Tom Keene to investigate and settle the issues. I'd say Keene went way beyond his orders with what you see here. But he's a cowboy hero and gets the job done.

It's a pretty shoddy B western that if not for Rita Hayworth would be obscure and forgotten.
