Trivia

1930s country comedian Lou Fulton plays a stutterer who is a source of distastefully uncomfortable amusement and ridicule, something that would not be politically correct today. His movie career was mercifully short. See more »

Quotes

Marion Warren: I never would gave thought of you as a heartthrob, Stony. Tuscon looks more the type.
Stony Brooke: Tucson?
Marion Warren: Yes, he's so... tall and handsome...
Stony Brooke: Yes, but he's getting very conceited lately. You see, we just taught him to read and write.

Rather Routine, But Watchable
31 March 2004 | by (Ohio) – See all my reviews

This 'Three Mesquiteers' feature is a fair B-Western, rather routine, and with quite a low-budget look to it, but watchable. It has generally likable, if ordinary, characters, and the story holds some interest. It has some lighter moments and just enough action to keep it moving along.

The story has the 'Mesquiteers' running across a new town that is being built to help out some settlers who have been displaced by a flood. The trio start to suspect that something might not be what it seems, so they stick around to look into things, and the action proceeds from there, with some occasional humor (much of it from Max Terhune). Some of it works, and some of it doesn't really come off. Overall, there's not too much that's either especially good or especially bad about this one.
