Better than I'd expected.

The Three Mesquiteers was a long series of B-westerns that featured quite a few different lineups of actors playing the three do-gooders (one of which included a young John Wayne). However, and I am not exactly sure why, the lineup of Robert Livingston, Ray Corrigan and Max Terhune was the one that you can most readily see today. Their films are in the public domain and the trio did quite a few of the films together. As I said, though, I am not 100% sure why these three did so many films--especially since Terhune would invariably whip out his dummy, Elmer, and begin his ventriloquism routine--something I severely doubted you'd have seen in the Old West!!! As for Livingston and Corrigan, they were competent but neither seemed to have a lot of charisma. Heck, when it comes to charisma, perhaps Elmer had the other three beat!!

This edition of the series features Livingston's brother--an idiot who manages to get involved with a duel with one of the other members of the Mesquiteers in the first three minutes of the film! This is even dumber because the guy is on the run from the law and takes time to do this! Soon after Livingston arrives and gets his brother to see the folly of his ways, they learn that he is on the run because a crooked Sheriff and Mayor are both trying to convict him for a murder he did not commit. So, after helping him find a good hiding place, they go into town to investigate. What follows is actually pretty good for a Mesquiteer movie--the plot, though silly, was engaging and the side-plot where Livingston falls for the daughter of the murder victim is interesting. Even the dumb scenes with Elmer (and ALL the scenes with Elmer are dumb), they are better than normal. Not a great film, but certainly among the better Livingston/Corrigan/Terhune installments.
