Rancher's Boy Marries Homesteader Girl
13 July 2010 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

I believe no one less than the Bard himself was the inspiration for this Bob Steele western. Romeo and Juliet gets a major reworking here as the young people in love, Steele and Louise Stanley and try to stop a range war.

Karl Hackett's character of the crooked lawyer who is trying to swindle the homesteaders out of their land and stirs up the feud to get the ranchers to do his dirty work is one slimy wretch. As in the classic kin to Steele and Stanley are killed. Let's say it works out a whole lot happier in the end than for the Montagues and Capulets.

Will Shakespeare shows up in many strange places.
