In the outlaw's gun-sights
10 February 2012 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

The Red Rope has Bob Steele getting ready to marry Lois January, but he finds out quite abruptly that he's come to the attention of a notorious outlaw called "The Rattler". For some reason Steele has got the Rattler to bare his fangs as he's made it known that Steele has his name on one of the Rattler's bullets.

The mystery here is just why has The Rattler got it in for Steele. Bob is relatively new to the area, arriving a few years earlier and not talking about his past. In addition there's another neighboring rancher who may like to marry January.

Lew Meehan is the Rattler and Karl Hackett is the disappointed suitor. One interesting character is the sharp shooting parson who is supposed to marry Steele and January. Forrest Taylor is the preacher with the quick trigger finger. More should have been done with him.

Steele also escapes from the outlaw's clutches in an incredibly stupid way from the outlaw point of view.

All in all The Red Rope is a sub par B western.
