The story takes place in the 19th Century era of stagecoaches and buckboards, but all of the women's clothes and hairstyles are strictly in the 1937 mode, complete with knee length skirts, bobbed hair, and high heeled shoes, etc. See more »

Alamo Bowie: Gee, that's a swell number.
Ranger Bob: You try to sing your way out of Tom Scudder's office tomorrow.
Alamo Bowie: Oh, now don't be that way. Nobody will like you. Say, Bob? What was that number we sang in El Paso?
Ranger Bob: Uh, Texas Prairie?
Alamo Bowie: That's it. What do you say we hit it?

Buck Jones is a cowboy star who's mostly forgotten today. A film like "Law for Tombstone" gives us little clue as to why he ever was a cowboy star. It is pure b-movie matinée cowboy fare. Buck is of course the new guy who's come to town where a sheriff is helpless to stop the series of stage coach robberies, until Buck steps in.

Apparently Buck did his own riding, roping and stunts, so I guess that's what made him a star to begin with. He also formed his own production company to make films like "Law for Tombstone". But other than the brief appearance of a "Sons of the Pioneers" type group (and the way they are sandwiched into this movie is NOT very satisfying at all) there really isn't much to be said about this film. Audiences of the time might have agreed, because Jones popularity began to wane in a year or two and he went from being a star at Universal to the poverty row Monogram Studios.
