Not among Gibson's finer moments.
29 December 2011 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

The biggest thing going for this and any other Hoot Gibson western is that there is not singing. Gibson was not a singing cowboy and he was one of the most ordinary looking heroes in cowboy film history. This has a lot to do with why I like the likes of him and Tim McCoy--two stars who were NOT pretty-boy heroes of the 'ol west! However, no matter how much I enjoy a Gibson film, it was hard to like this one--mostly because it was so low budgeted and the writing was amazingly flat. Unlike the often lighthearted film he usually made, this one is deadly serious...and not in a good way.

The film begins with Hoot being appointed the Deputy Marshall--quite against his wishes. However, he agrees to go undercover and infiltrate a local gang. Can he capture the gang AND the girl by the time the film ends.

There are no surprises, no twists and nothing to distinguish this film. In fact, my score of 4 might just be a bit generous, as this is a film that non-Gibson fans should avoid. Instead, try to see his talkies such as "Local Bad Man" and "The Hard Hombre".
