They Seem Like Intelligent Guys
23 July 2011 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

In Land Beyond The Law rancher Tom Brower is at his wit's end with hell raising son Dick Foran who doesn't even work for Brower, but for rival Cy Kendall. It's not jealousy, but the fact that Kendall is suspected by Brower of some cattle rustling.

When Brower is killed, Governor Lew Wallace of New Mexico appoints young Foran the sheriff and he's a changed man. Foran does what one expects from a cowboy hero and sings a few songs along the way. The man's voice was truly wasted here, he should have been in musicals.

Of course there's some romance here with Linda Perry, daughter of saloon owner Irene Franklin. Foran has some rivalry with Wayne Morris for her and Frank Orth is around for comic relief.

My big problem with Land Beyond The Law is the fact that I could not believe that Foran, Morris, and their third friend Glenn Strange could not figure out all the evil that was being done by their boss Kendall and his chief lieutenant Harry Woods. They seem like intelligent guys to me. It just did not ring true at all.

Dick Foran is in good voice though it's wasted on some forgettable songs. His fans should appreciate this film.
